A heavy metal tribute band's lead singer joins the band he emulates, rising from everyman to musical god in record time.
Chris Cole is a copy-machine repairman who lives at home, moonlighting as the lead singer of a Pennsylvania band devoted to covers of songs by legendary heavy metal act Steel Dragon. Chris idolizes Steel Dragon's lead singer, Bobby Beers, delighting audiences with a pitch-perfect imitation of Beers' vocals that girlfriend Emily supports all the way. Disappointment and heartbreak when Chris is unexpectedly kicked out of his band does not last long, as he is soon tapped as Steel Dragon's new singer; further complications arise when he faces difficulties adjusting to his new lifestyle, going from rock zero to rock hero overnight.
