In full stage make-up and costume, he transforms into Johannes Krauser II (Sir Krauser), the vulgar-mouthed lead vocalist of the band.

Cool rock movie about a Japanese geek/teen in a disguised metal band (sort of like KISS), and what he secretly wants to do.
Funny movie, and one or two scenes include Gene Simmons.
This movie takes the old tradition of wrestling (kayfabe), that fights are real, so here it makes it seem all bands are at war with each other I guess.
English subtitles.
