​Fifteen years later, that tour bus group singalong of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" still rings in our ears.

"Almost Famous" may not have been a hit when it first opened on September 15, 2000, but over the years, it's come to pluck the heartstrings and echo in the eardrums of millions of fans. It made a star of Kate Hudson, gave an early career boost to Zooey Deschanel, and won writer/director Cameron Crowe (of "Say Anything" and "Jerry Maguire" fame) his only Oscar to date.

In honor of "Almost Famous'" fifteenth anniversary, crank up Stillwater's "Fever Dog" and check out these facts you may not know about Crowe's semi-autobiographical film.
