To become the greatest band of all time, two slacker, wannabe-rockers set out on a quest to steal a legendary guitar pick that gives its holders incredible guitar skills, from a maximum security Rock and Roll museum.
The scene with JB sleeping, on a bench near the beach, then being attacked by a gang of pin-striped hooligans is a direct homage to the "Droogs" in Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (1971).
JB: Let's do this. Fatty.
The "pick of destiny" is said to have disappeared for centuries, only to turn up in the hands of Robert Johnson at the turn of the century in the American South. However, Robert Johnson did not play the guitar using a pick - he plucked the strings with his fingertips.
There is a post-credits scene.
