Errors in geography 

When A.D.D. first gets on the bus, Gator makes a reference to "heading north on the 5." They were in Cleveland, but the 5 is on the west coast. Also, north from Cleveland gets you very wet.

When Fish is on the porch he looks at the Rock Hall. There is no such view from any house in Cleveland. The Rock Hall is downtown, surrounded by large buildings with no residential neighborhoods.

When Fish is dumped by his girlfriend at the beginning, he walks to his sister's house to crash, and he is shown walking North past the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to get there. Not only is there no residential area in that direction, but if he walked just a little bit further, he would walk right into Lake Erie, as the Rock Hall is on the Erie shore.

The skyline shown right before A.D.D. views their music video is of Minneapolis (Wells Fargo building, US Bank building, etc.) not Cleveland.

Vesuvius is slated to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after 20 years together. However, artists aren't eligible for induction (barring an extenuating circumstance) until 25 years have passed since the artist released his/her/their debut.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When the video director asks the band to read the words backwards, he has a sign held up for them to read backwards words. However, the word 'mistake' is spelled as k-a-t-e-s-i-m when it should be e-k-a-t-s-i-m. If you sound out "k-a-t-e-s-i-m" phonetically, it would be "mistake" backwards. "e-k-a-t-s-i-m" wouldn't work.

Plot holes 

Matt comes to Lee's basement to present Fish with a laptop and web-cam to practice, but Matt wouldn't know where Fish was staying as Matt was grounded so could not use the phone, Fish is not seen to own a phone and Matt's mum would not want to stay in contact with Fish.

After Aziz has taken off the plastic wrapping of his new bought Vesuvius CD, he takes it out the box and holds it up with the back facing the camera - The CD is clearly a CD-R with a green recordable back, not a silver backing like any original store bought audio CD would have.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

When Vesuvius leave the Stage at the end of the movie and A.D.D. reenter it, it can clearly be seen that the drum kit of Vesuvius is covered again and the much smaller drum kit of Fish is on Stage, which wasn't their when Vesuvius started to "play".
