This spoof of heavy-metal culture revolves around a dimwitted garage band known as ‘The Lone Rangers'. Likeable singer-songwriter Chazz (Brendan Fraser), sweet but simple bass player Pip (Adam Sandler) and self-absorbed, aging drummer Rex (Steve Buscemi), are so desperate to hear their music played on the airwaves that they sneak into local radio station KPPX, demo-tape in hand. Unfortunately, their efforts are met with sarcasm by the burned-out DJ (Joe Mantegna), and Chazz angrily pulls out a realistic-looking uzi water-pistol. Before they know it, the band have eight hostages, and the station is surrounded by squad cars and media, along with the best publicity they could ever want. Directed by Michael Lehmann (Heathers), the hilarious Airheads parodies all the silliness of heavy metal from the lingo and the look to the ridiculous lyrics and cliched guitar licks.
