For years, the record industries have inserted subliminal messages into music so that they can turn teenagers into braindead zombies who do nothing but buy, buy, buy. And whenever the musician or band finds out the truth, the record company silences them to keep the truth from coming out. When the hot boy band DuJour discovers this, their manager, Wyatt Frame (Alan Cumming), under his evil, corrupt boss, Fiona (Parker Posey), has the plane they are flying in crashed and him looking for a new band to use for their evil schemes. Enter Josie (Rachel Leigh Cook), the ditzy Melody (Tara Reid), and the tough Valerie (Rosario Dawson), from Josie and the Pussycats, a small band who wants to make it to the big top. When they are discovered by Wyatt, they give in and become big rock stars. But will they find out that they are just pawns for the record industry or will fame take them over?
