Top Gun; ah, that bastion of all-American homoeroticism that has become the ultimate synonym for masculinity in the movie world. With Tom Cruise as a character literally called Maverick flying pretty planes with shooty guns to try and shake the indignity of his father’s questionable record.

Even he would be impressed by point number seven…

One of the most iconic scenes in the movie comes when Maverick and Goose perform a slightly…merry version of Great Balls of Fire while spending the night out at a bar. In fact, this bar does indeed exist-and it can be found under the name Kansas City BBQ in San Diego California. Ironically, a fire destroyed much of the memorabilia-but the piano is still there, and they kindly sell a bunch of Top Gun tack for your enjoyment.
