Roadies spend the majority of their time hauling equipment and tuning instruments. Not Eddie Riggs. After he spills blood on his badass belt buckle in a backstage mishap, the world’s best roadie is transported to an alternate universe ripped straight from a heavy metal album cover. Under the reign of evil Lord Doviculus and his glam rockin’ minion General Lionwhyte, demons have enslaved humanity. Armed with two axes (a dual-bladed weapon and a guitar), Riggs, voiced by Jack Black, must rally the oppressed headbangers and restore rock. With an outlandish script and an amazing cast of rock legends (including Lemmy Kilmister, Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Halford, and Lita Ford), Brütal Legend is the best homage to rock ‘n’ roll since This Is Spinal Tap.
