* InVinoVeritas: One scene features Chris and Mats having drinks at the Rainbow Bar & Grill (a well-known rock star hangout in Hollywood). During their conversation, Mats tells the story about how he was once married, but left his wife because married life did not promise as much excitement as touring with rock bands. His wife later got remarried to a doctor and had children with him. The melancholic tone of Mats' voice implies that he's uncertain if he made the right choice or not.

** In one scene, Chris drives a motorcycle down the hallway of the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood. John Bonham from Music/LedZeppelin did the same thing in the same hotel in the 1970s.

* 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.
