Being left behind, Fish swears vengeance, saying he'll be in a band someday thats much more famous than Vesuvius. Now twenty-some years later Fish struggles at constant unemployment while Vesuvius has become wildly successful. After hearing his teenage nephew Matt (Gad) is in a band that needs a drummer he forces himself into the new young band. Facing a prom performing embarrassment, constant ridicule and overnight success thanks to a sleazy manager and a viral video, the band is on a roller coaster that leads to their opening for Vesuvius of all bands! Can Fish pull it together, or will he once again be left behind?moreless
