  • Spinal Tap with a bit of History boys thrown in.

    Edmondson is a true genius in the words of \'I wrote it when i saw 10\' referring to Stairway to Heaven. Truely funny. This episode is so brilliant because no other comedians/actors bother to take on such a narrative of a crap wannabe metal band because simply they\'re not cool enough or know enough about music. More Bad News was also absolutely fantastically funny. This really is a must see for anyone who has been in a band/like Led Zeppelin or Motorhead/knows wannabe rockstars/loves Spinal tap. This is 10 times better than Spinal tap though. And it pre dated it.moreless
