The story of the 1985 Senatorial hearings to place "Warning: Parental Advisory" labels on music albums with "obscene" lyrics and themes - and the rockers who tried to fight it.
Dee Snider's speech before the Senate is, word for word, the exact same speech he gave during the real Senate hearings in 1985.
I'm told you may be one of the monkeys responsible for my record label's disgusting capitulation to an uptight bunch of Washington housewives.
Charlie Burner: Who is this?
Frank Zappa: My name is Frank Zappa and I'm coming for you, monkey boy.
The end credits state none of Frank Zappa's albums received a Parental Advisory sticker, when in fact "Jazz From Hell" (ironically a purely instrumental album) was tagged with a Parental Advisory warning by the distributor.
During the final credits, the movie cuts back and forth between the video for the Twisted Sister song "We're Not Gonna Take It" and shots of the movie's cast and crew dancing and singing along with the song.
