Storyline

A brutal stabbing...one of the band members (Ciaran) is tortured for not obeying the evil conspirators. We then cut to the beginning of the film and meet the band one by one, though we don't know the significance of the earlier carnage. Through a series of comedic mishaps, we get to know the band members and learn that they are all, to differing degrees and by different means, very stupid and often quite annoying. They go for an interview with a record company which Ciaran messes up. They are later called back for another interview, which is odd since they were forcibly ejected the first time. The second interview is given by a different man, Goodbar, who tolerates absolutely anything they say or do. He asks them to play a live performance for his boss so that he can sign them. Before they can play live, we are shown a secret meeting of the executives of the rival company including Goodbar. Their plan is laid out for us - to bankrupt their rivals by making them sign this god-awful ... Written by Ben Keenan
