Deliberate mistake: During "Izzy"'s inaugural concert with Steel Dragon, there are two shots that are recycled during the first song. One is the rear shot of the guitarist in a low stance rocking back and forth, and the other is Jennifer Aniston raising her arms in the air and screaming for the band. Not only is the repeat a mistake, but when they reuse the shot of the guitarist, the second time it is not in time with the music.
Factual error: In the opening credits, a new model Chevy S-10 is shown. That body style wasn't out till the mid 90's.
Rob: Dude, I just keep putting this shit on until I want to fuck myself.
Trivia: The references to Rock Star being base on the real life break up of the band Judas Priest throughout the film are numerous....Most notably in the montage of Chris Cole's life on the road with Steel Dragon he appears on the cover of 'Metal God' magazine several times. 'Metal God' was originally slated to be the title of the film which you can see on the "take" clicker during the outtakes while the movie's credits start to roll. Former Priest frontman Rob Halford is commonly referred to as the 'Metal God'. Halford was unceremoniously dumped from Judas Priest in the early 90s' for deciding to go public with the fact he was gay. Bobby Beers, Steel Dragon's first frontman in the movie, was kicked out of the band for amongst other reasons, being gay.
