Oh, yeah. That was for all you pinheads...

...too hip to take off your

jackets in the 95 heat.

When the weather gets like this

it brings all you nutbags out...

...and since I am a trouble magnet, I have

one thing to say to you bozos: back off.

Here's the Sons of

Thunder from their album

Scrambled Eggs and Wobbly Legs.

This is Ian the Shark on the station with...

...more hair, more flair,

yet so debonair:

Rebel Radio-oh-oh-oh-oh.

Hey. Hey. You've gotta check in here.

Get Security on the second floor.

We've got a bogey in elevator one.

It's that guy in the delivery uniform again.

OK, be wild. Be as wild as you wanna.

If you feel like wetting yourself, go with it,

OK? Anarchy's good.

They like anarchy, OK?

But what are we supposed to say?

- What? Don't say anything.

Jeez, do you wanna blow this? You know

how much these stupid hats set me back?


- Oh, no. Hey, excuse me?

Mike, it's him. The wacko's back.

Yeah, I'm up here in A&R right now.

I'm not goin' anywhere.

Oh, hey, dude.

Hey, hi. Are you an executive here?

- Yeah.

How you doin'?

My name's Chazz. Chazz Darby.

I'm in this band and we've

got this incredibly...

...sweet demo. I think you should hear it.

I can't take that tape from you.

It's called unsolicited material.

Hey, but this is the real thing, man. This is

rock 'n' roll. None of that gimmicky stuff.

I would love to hear it,

but if it's unsolicited, I can't touch it.

We've been trying to get solicited...

Well, then maybe a gimmick would help.

The cream always rises, OK?

Super-duper. Thanks.

All right, dude. Thanks a lot. Whoa.

You again.

You just can't learn, can you, scumbag?

Take care now.

Here's your tape.

Hey. How was your day?

Oh, Gary is a tremendous a**hole.

He had this whole stack of invoices

and he made me arrange them by date.

He's such a tweaker.

- It sucks.

Did you mail the rent?

- You, uh... you didn't leave me a stamp.

Well, maybe you could have

gone and bought one.


Chazz. What the hell

happened to my make-up?

It fell in the toilet.

Sh*t. Babe, come on.

I told you not to leave it on the tank.

- You ruined my make-up, butt.

What's this attitude, Kayla?

Know what I've been through today?

I guess you woke up

when the sun was warm...

...and rode your Harley

up and down Melrose...

...impressing all the 15-year-old girls, right?

I was down at Palatine Records.

That's where I was.

Really? What happened?

I had a meeting with

a big record executive and, uh...

What did he say? Why didn't you tell me?

Well, we talked about solicitation...

...and the guy said he'd snap us up

in a second if it weren't for the lawyers.

Did he like the tape?

- I was about to give it to him...

...then a security guard showed up

and ruined everything.

Come on.

- Please.

Hey, it's true. I'm making

really good contacts. I am.

When they hear this song they'll go apeshit.

It's just gonna take

time. What's the big deal?

The 'big deal' is that I'm doing the bullshit

work and you're living the rock 'n' roll life.

I wanna live the life, too.

- I'm doing this for us.

Come on, babe. You know that

once I make it you got a free ride.

I'm gonna treat you like gold.

Chazz, it's been months.

Maybe you should get a job.

This is my job. I am

trying managers, record...

...executives, club

owners. That's hard work.

You get to sit in a nice office all day

smoking and drinking coffee.


- This is bullshit.

Oh, my snout.

- You bastard.

I hate you. You are nobody

and you are never gonna be anybody.

You're treating me like I'm a goober

after I wrote this song for you?
