FROM THIS EPISODE

From Anthrax to Poison, Guns and Roses to Metalica, these are just a few groups inspired by Anvil, the most influencial band you've never heard of. Its story's in Sacha Gervasi's film,  Anvil! The Story of Anvil.

Originally a roadie for Anvil in the early 80's, writer-director Gervasi (The Big Tease, The Terminal) catches up with the Canadian metal band in 2005, over 20 years since they fell into rock-world oblivion. Many have described the film as a real life Spinal Tap with its catalogue of disasters that befall its original members and childhood friends, Steve "Lips" Kudlow and Robb Reiner. In a wonderful twist of fate, the documentary's success has led to the band's being rediscovered, including an invitation to perform at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
