Continuity
In the last scent, during the concert, when Farhan Akhtar goes on the stage to sing, it's dusk but after a few minutes it's completely dark.
Trivia:
The lead vocalist Aditya's birthday in the movie is repeatedly highlighted as July 22. This referred to the real birthday of Don Henley, the lead vocalist of the Eagles. The lead guitarist's name is Joseph Mascarenhas, nick-named Joe which is the same as one of the lead guitarists of the Eagles, Joe Walsh.

Jason West, the DOP of the film is a drummer himself. So during lunch breaks the band would have jam sessions with the DOP on the drums.

Joe uses an Ibanez Jem Steve Vai series electric guitar.

The "Rock On!!" Band (MAGIK Band) members appeared on the cover of the September 2008 issue of the Rolling Stone (India edition).

Arjun Rampal said that before learning guitar for the movie, he used to play guitar on his tennis racket.

In the scene where MAGIK meets the recording company's owner, among many picture frames adorning the table, one picture shows the owner with Mr. Javed Akhtar. Mr. Javed is the lyricist of this movie and father of Farhan Akhtar.

The guitar riff of the title song "Rock On" was used by Shankar Ehsaan Loy as a background score in one of the action sequences of Farhan Akhtar's 2004 movie Lakshya (2004).

KD's first name is Kedar. This is shown when his father scolds him for not making a particular jewelery delivery, just before he meets Saakshi.

This film garnered the most prestigious honor from the Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for including the "Rock On!!" script as a part of the Oscar Library.

"Musafir", a song from a newly formed band RADIO was featured in the film, but was not part of the album. It was performed in the concert shown towards the end of the movie by one of the participating bands.
