* AlliterativeName: Chris Cole, Bobby Beers, and (sound-wise) Kirk Cuddy.



* MsFanservice: Nina and Samantha, the two Steel Dragon fangirls/groupies. Their only roles in the film seem to be looking sexy and saying everything in unison (although they were ultimately responsible for Chris joining Steel Dragon by showing a Blood Pollution video tape to Kurt Cutty). Creator/JenniferAniston wears some pretty revealing outfits, too, including the crocheted dress and a see-through t-shirt.

Cutty). Creator/JenniferAniston wears some pretty revealing outfits, too, including the crocheted dress and a see-through t-shirt.
