A naturally-born-rocker, Chris Cole can rock a mic. Especially when he's singing songs to his favorite band ever, Steel Dragon. He spends his days fixing photocopiers and moonlights as the lead vocals to Blood Pollution, Pennsylvania's leading Steel Dragon tribute band.

When on stage Cole (Mark Wahlberg) seems to be totally in touch with the voice and performance antics of Steel Dragon front man Bobby Beers, to the point that fans actually show Steel Dragon how good Chris is at singing their songs.

Thus when Chris is thrown out by his old band he is shocked to get a call from the real Steel Dragon founder asking him to audition for the band's now vacant lead vocal position. How will Chris deal with his instant fame? And how will he try to keep his love for Emily (Jennifer Aniston) alive through this roller coaster of rock'n'roll?

Many real-life rockers appear as musicians in this film, see how many you can spot...
