    Unceremoniously ditched by eighties band Vesuvius as they teeter on the brink of fame, wannabe rock-god Fish (Rainn Wilson The American Office) spends the next twenty years of his life watching bitterly as Vesuvius become legends, living the rock and roll lifestyle that should have been his.

    Hell-bent on seeking revenge against the band that shattered his dreams and fired from yet another meaningless job, Fish moves in with his long-suffering sister and socially-inept nephew Matt (Josh Gad). When Matt's high school rock band 'ADD' lose their drummer, Fish throws himself into the role desperate to reclaim his rock-god throne. Aiming for superstardom he takes the band on the ride of their lives and as their star begins to ascend Fish realises he might get a second shot at the big time and a chance to exact the revenge he so desperately desires.
