This Is Spin¨al Tap (officially spelled with a non-functional umlaut over the letter n and a dotless i) is a 1984 mock rockumentary starring members of the fictional heavy-metal/hard rock band Spinal Tap. The film satirizes the wild personal behavior and musical pretensions of hard-rock and heavy-metal bands, as well as the hagiographic tendencies of rockumentaries of the time.
