Rockumentary
The Documentary, only based around rock/pop music and those who perform it, officially known as a video album. These can be an analysis of the culture or industry surrounding music or can focus on a single band. This naturally overlaps with the concert film or live DVD.

The exact distinction of a Rockumentary can be difficult to draw. A full-blown live show wouldn't count unless it contains an actual documentary portion (observations, interviews, hand-held-camera sections, history etc.) A concert inter cut with backstage footage and documentary-like segments would be borderline.

Also see Wikipedia's article on it.
