Rock 'n Roll Will Never Die! continues at Trailers from Hell, with filmmaker Brian Trenchard-Smith taking on the Swedish musical comedy "Sound of Noise," from 2010.

Police investigate a ticking time bomb which turns out to be a metronome. That witty scene is the perfect set up for this low-budget, off-kilter comedy from Swedish directors Ola Simonsson and Johannes Stjarneabout about a band of "terrorist" musicians who express themselves via kidnapping and bank robberies and the tone deaf, music-hating cop determined to track them down. One of the more obscure films we’ve featured here, but definitely worth looking up.
