It's no secret that Tom Cruise has musical chops.

He not only danced his way to stardom—in his underwear, no less—in Risky Business, but he also serenaded Kelly McGillis in Top Gun with that unforgettable cover of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling." And most recently, he jammed with Jennifer Lopez at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards as his Tropic Thunder alter ego Les Grossman.

But what the heck is he doing getting all Axl Rose and Bret Michaels on us in Rock of Ages? If the first trailer for the flick is any indication, he's doing a lot more than just making music.

With that, let's take a look at some of the musical movie's most rockin' scenes—and big-haired stars.

Rock of Ages, Tom Cruise

They Will Rock You: Based on the Broadway musical of the same name, Rock of Ages takes place along L.A.'s famed Sunset Strip in the late hair-band-crazy eighties. Cruise stars as Stacee Jaxx, a rock star who plays sold-out arenas and has a pet monkey. He also likes showing off his muscles and back tattoos by performing shirtless.

Rock of Ages, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand

Who's the Boss? Alec Baldwin sports some long locks to play the owner of a rock club on the brink of being shut down by the mayor's overzealous conservative wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones). Russell Brand is his trusted—and frizzy haired—sidekick.

Rock of Ages, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta

Love Is a Battlefield: Julianne Hough and Latin hottie Diego Boneta costar as two aspiring singers working at Baldwin's club who—duh!—fall in love. And from the looks of it, they do find some rockin' success in the music biz.

Rock of Ages, Catherine Zeta-Jones

First Lady of Los Angeles: Director Adam Shankman created Jones' character specifically for the movie. Jones, who won an Oscar for her work as a dancing and singing villainess in Chicago, leads a protest of Baldwin's club by belting out Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It"—in an '80s power suit! You go, girl!

Rock of Ages, Malin Akerman

Speaking of Clothing (or Lack Thereof): That's not Hough stripping down to her bra, but fellow blond beauty Malin Akerman. She plays a journalist who knocks (motorcycle) boots with Stacee Jaxx. Boneta seems to have summed up the movie best when he told us recently, "It's a f--king rollercoaster."

Get ready to rock, people! The flick hits theaters June 1, 2012.
