Cisco has co-written a hit song for his friend Mickey Avalon - now their new manager Stubner tells him that Whitestarr needs to come up with a hit song too. Cisco rallies the band and moves them all into his Malibu house to work on the song 24/7. But their work in the studio just leads to fights and a blowup between Cisco and Rainbow. At a raucous party, the band is taken by surprise when Stubner wants to hear their new songs LIVE. The performance is a disaster, cut short by an angry Cisco. Just when things hit bottom, it gets even worse. While Cisco is in New York with his girlfriend Mischa Barton, his beloved dog Bean dies back home and he winds up in a fight with Mischa. Rushing back for a show at the Viper Room, a distraught Cisco succumbs to the pressure of the last week and melts down on stage, whipping the crowd into a near-riot and topping it all off by dropping his pants on stage. The next day a snapshot of Cisco’s privates appears on the Internet. Cisco finally acknowledges that sometimes things can go so wrong you have no choice but to laugh, and the band goes back into the studio to work on the hit.
