Scene: Le Grand Paris. Jagged Stone is performing a song for Bob Roth and Penny Rolling.
Jagged Stone: (singing) Mah Miraculous!
(Penny applauds while Bob watches with crossed arms)
Jagged: (to Bob) So, what do you think of the first single off my next album? Can you feel it, Bob? Isn't it killer?
Bob: Not bad, Jagged, not bad. But if you really want to be making something killer, let's talk about this duet with Mr. XY.
Jagged: No way. He's not a rocker, he's a baby! I bet he doesn't even shave yet.
Bob: Well, this "baby" just pushed you out of the number one sales spot.
Jagged: And? Doesn't make him a true musician like me. Penny thinks everything I'm doing's rock star material. She thinks I'm killer.
Bob: Penny might be your agent, but I'm your real boss. Listen. Bottom line is that Bob Roth Records cannot afford to be number two in sales! Or rep a number two rock star! Get real, Jagged! You're going to have to modernize your music. Change the way you look. Get a whole new style!
Jagged: You want to talk about real? I'm a genuine rock and roller, Bob! Not some pop star in diapers. I'm a real artist. Real talent! Even my hair is real. And that's what people love about me. (to Fang) Isn't that right, Fang? Yeah. (turning back to Bob) And the artwork you came up with for my album is a waste of my time! Seriously, Bob, what is this trash? It looks like a perfume ad!
Bob: (pointing a finger at Jagged's chest) And that's what people want these days!
Jagged: Well, I don't. My album covers are raw to the bone, exuding the smell of sweat and leather!
Bob: You do know, don't you, that if your next album doesn't rate number one on the charts, it'll be the last one you ever do with Bob Roth records.
Jagged: I'd rather put out nothing at all than sing some pathetic duet with a baby-faced nobody.
Penny: Bob, Jagged and I had an idea. Its concept is modern, but it also respects Jagged's own...rugged style.
Jagged: (takes off glasses and shows them to Bob) The schoolgirl who made these glasses has some real talent. She totally gets my style. She's going to design the cover of my new album.
Bob: A schoolgirl?
Penny: See? That's just it. She's the same age as the target audience. (holds out a piece of paper) Here's her address.
Bob: (folds arms and growls)
(Fang growls in return)
Bob: (jumps away from Fang in alarm, takes the piece of paper, and begins to leave the room) Okay! But just think about that duet with Mr. XY.
Jagged: Find that girl, Bob!
Scene: Tom & Sabine Boulangerie Patisserie. Bob is speaking with Marinette in front of her parents.
Bob: So, are you interested?
Marinette: Uh...wait, wait, wait. Let me get this straight. You want...me to design the album cover for Jagged Stone?! My...all-time favorite singer?!
Bob: That's right! Requested by Jagged Stone himself. (pulls out an XY album) I brought a few visuals so you can get a sense of what we're going for.
Marinette: (looks at album design) This doesn't seem like Jagged Stone material. More like...a perfume ad!
Bob: This is the direction of his new image. More modern, current!
Marinette: ...really? Wow. I was thinking more along the lines of–
Bob: (interrupts Marinette) Don't think! This is what is selling these days.
Bob: And one last thing, Marinette. We're in a hurry! We need your proposal by the end of the day. You up to it?
Marinette: (looks at her parents, who nod reassuringly) Uh, yeah! Okay.
Bob: (leaves the bakery) See you later, then!
Tom: (to Marinette) My daughter, famous album cover designer. You're going to kill it! Marinette style. Boo yah! (he and Marinette high five, and the two of them and Sabine share a hug)
Scene: Marinette's room. Marinette is drawing an album cover on her tablet while listening to XY's music, as Tikki watches.
Marinette: (covers her ears and stops the music) Oh, why does Jagged Stone want to change his style? XY's music is so cold and lifeless, repetitive, mundane, the total opposite of Jagged. And what I've just done here is...ugh...is so not my style either.
Tikki: So why are you doing it, then?
Marinette: Because that's what I was asked to do.
Tikki: Maybe you should follow your gut feeling. Do something that's really you!
Marinette: But you heard what Mr. Roth said! (imitates Bob) This is what's selling these days.
Tikki: Yeah, but...Jagged Stone wanted you because of your style!
Marinette: Augh, the pressure! I can't deal!
Tikki: Marinette, superhero of France, defender of the innocent, fighter of all the rights, can't deal with the pressure?
Marinette: (chuckles, taps her pen while thinking) Augh. (turns XY's music back on and resumes drawing)
Scene: Le Grand Paris. Marinette presents her design to Jagged Stone in front of Bob and Penny.
Jagged: (looking at design) What happened to the raw, impulsive artistry that made this?
Marinette: Yeah, about that, Mr. Roth told me–
Bob: (interrupting Marinette) Marinette's young, Jag! She represents our target audience. She's come up with a modern concept that's exactly what you need.
Jagged: Doesn't it look a lot like the cover of that YZ guy? Marinette, don't listen to Bob. Could you do another one? You know, Jagged style?
Marinette: (hesitantly) Yeah, sure! (Bob puts a hand on her shoulder) But I don't know if–
Jagged: (holds Marinette's hands) You're my girl, Marinette. Remember: raw, impulsive artistry. I think we're all done here, Bob.
Bob: No! We are not! (Fang growls, and Bob draws back)
Penny: (leading Marinette away) Come with me, Marinette. Don't worry! Just do your best, okay?
Bob: We aren't– (Fang growls again) Aah!
Scene: Le Grand Paris. On his tablet, Jagged is watching Nadja Chamack interview XY.
XY: (in interview) Why am I number one? Simple. It's not about music, it's about technology. This computer is programmed to produce music and lyrics people like. It's guaranteed success. (takes a sip from his drink)
Jagged: (growls and glares at tablet)
Nadja Chamack: (in interview) You knocked Jagged Stone off the number one spot. What do you think of him?
XY: (throws drink aside) Bleah! Jagged Stone, the hero of rock and roll? Try "Ragged Stone." That guy's old school, a has-been.
Jagged: Me? Old-school? A has-been?!
XY: He's had his career, but it's over now. He'll never be number one, not while XY is here.
Jagged: Why, you little perfume ad!
XY: My music is killer.
Jagged: He's stealing my catchphrases!
Nadja: Tonight, Mr. XY will be giving a very special one-time concert from the top of the Eiffel Tower, to celebrate his album's success, and thank his awesome fans.
XY: Hey Ragged, if you wanna know what today's music sounds like, come to my concert. I'll reserve you a front-row seat, old man, you know—in case your hearing's going.
Jagged: He can't talk about me like that! This guy's an insult to rock...and me! (breaks glass on tablet, tosses it to Fang, and begins to angrily play his guitar)
Scene: Hawk Moth's lair.
Hawk Moth: I feel a disharmonious soul, an angry dischord. Ideal prey for my evil akumas. (turns a butterfly into an akuma, and sends it out) Go find that Jagged Stone, and rock his world!
Scene: Le Grand Paris. Jagged is still angrily playing his guitar.
(The akuma flies into the hotel. Fang tries to bite it, but it passes by and enters Jagged's guitar.)
Hawk Moth: Guitar Villain, I am Hawk Moth. I'm giving you and your vicious crocodile the power to show the whole world that you are the number one rocker! Just make sure you get me Ladybug and Cat Noir's Miraculous in return.
Jagged: Yeah! Let's rock! (begins to transform)
Scene: Outside Le Grand Paris. Marinette is walking while looking at the cover of XY's album.
Adrien: Hey. Marinette! Hey, hi!
Marinette: Hey! Oh, uh…what's going on? I mean, how's up? I mean, oh, uh…(slaps herself in the face)
Adrien: Well, uh…
Chloé: (runs out hotel doors, pushes Marinette aside, and hugs Adrien) Hi, Adrikins! There you are. Amazing Chloé has got a surprise for you! She knows you're a fan of Jagged Stone's.
Adrien: Uh, I am!
Chloé: Sooo, you get a private meeting with your favorite star. He's staying right here in Daddy's hotel! Is Chloé the best, or is Chloé the best?
Marinette: (to Tikki) Did you hear that?
Tikki: Chloé speaking in the third person? Totally annoying.
Marinette: No! The part where Adrien likes Jagged just like me! Now I definitely can't mess up the artwork.
Tikki: So, now what?
Marinette: I'm going to design Jagged Stone's next album my way, and no one else's.
Tikki: Way to go, Marinette! Follow your instinct!
Adrien's bodyguard: Hmm?
Marinette: (closes purse) Talking bag! New technology! Imported from Japan!
Scene: Inside Le Grand Paris. Chloé and Adrien are waiting for the elevator..
Chloé: You and I both like the same kind of music. Isn't that awesome?
Adrien: I…thought you liked Mr. XY.
Chloé: Of course I do! Don't you?
Adrien: Not really, no.
Chloé: Uh…well, neither do I. See? We have the same great taste!
(Off to the side, Bob and Penny are talking)
Bob: A duet with Mr. XY would show everyone that Jagged Stone—
(Bob is interrupted by a roar from Fang, who is revealed to have been transformed into a dragon)
Guitar Villain: From now on, you can call him Guitar Villain. He'll never do a duet with Mr. XY! In fact, soon, there won't even be a Mr. XY! Rockin' Riff, baby! (fires purple energy from his guitar at Bob and Penny, causing them to start dancing) Soon, there'll be nothing but Guitar Villain fans, the one and only rocker on Earth.
Hawk Moth: (from his lair) Such symphony to my ears. It won't be long before Ladybug and Cat Noir show up to meet their doom!
Chloé: Hurry, Adrien, get me out of here!
(Adrien puts Chloé in the elevator and the doors close between them. Adrien runs toward Guitar Villain and hides behind a flowerpot.)
Guitar Villain: (leaves the hotel) Yeah! Guitar Villain! Wooh!
Adrien: Plagg, claws out! (Adrien transforms into Cat Noir.)
(Fang flies out of the hotel past the doorman and Guitar Villain follows behind him.)
Guitar Villain: Rockin' Riff, baby!
(Guitar Villain shoots the doorman with purple energy, causing him to start dancing), and proceeds to do the same with several cars, pigeons, and people, including Xavier Ramier.)
Guitar Villain: Rockin' Riff, baby!
Cat Noir: (standing on Fontaine du Palmier) Hey Jagged! C'mon! Why don't you try and rock my world?
Guitar Villain: The name's Guitar Villain, pussycat. Awesome Solo!
(Guitar Villain fires orange energy at Cat Noir, who jumps off the fountain as the energy knocks it down. Cat Noir dodges more shots of energy. Fang flies overhead and breathes a cloud of green fire at Cat Noir, who dodges.)
Guitar Villain: Awesome Solo! (hits Cat Noir with orange energy and uses it to pin him against a wall) Welcome to my fan club, baby!
Marinette: (overhears fight a block behind her and turns to see Fang) Do you see what I see, Tikki?
Tikki: If you see a dragon, then yes I do.
Marinette: I've got to transform! (hides behind a tree)
Marinette: Tikki, spots on! (Marinette transforms into Ladybug.)
(Cat Noir is hit by a car thrown by one of Guitar Villain's blasts, and Fang attacks him. Ladybug jumps in and blocks Fang's attack with her yoyo.)
Ladybug: Cat Noir, you okay?
Cat Noir: Good to see you, my lady.
(Fang circles overhead, preparing to attack again.)
Ladybug: Cat Noir, your stick!
(Ladybug wraps Cat Noir in her yoyo and throws him towards Fang. Cat Noir extends the stick in Fang's mouth, pinning it open. Fang closes his mouth and the stick pops out. While falling, Cat Noir catches the stick and crashes into a traffic light.)
Guitar Villain: (standing on Fang's back) You're wasting my time. I've got a concert to get to! (flies off)
Ladybug: Cone on, we gotta follow them! (jumps onto a roof with Cat Noir) His power comes from playing his guitar. We've got to keep him from performing.
Cat Noir: Well, I won't let you do this solo.
Scene: Eiffel Tower. Guitar Villain is flying on Fang towards the top of the tower.
(Guitar Villain jumps off of Fang and approaches what appears to be XY practicing for his concert.)
Guitar Villain: You're an insult to the music world, XY! (tries to punch XY only to discover that XY is a hologram.) An 'ologram?!
(Guitar Villain looks over to see Théo Barbot as the actual person playing the music. Théo tries to hide, but Guitar Villain grabs him and holds him up by the wrist.)
Guitar Villain: Where's the real XY?
Théo: He's not here yet! The concert's not until tonight! I-I'm just setting up the special effects, dude!
Guitar Villain: Awesome Solo! (shoots orange energy to destroy the equipment) Where's Mr. XY? Answer me!
Théo: On TV! He's at the TV station!
Guitar Villain: Rockin' Riff, baby!
(Guitar Villain tries to shoot Théo with purple energy. Ladybug and Cat Noir jump over the side of the tower, and Ladybug pulls Théo out of the way at the last minute.)
Guitar Villain: You again?! To the TV studios, Fang! (jumps off the side of the tower and lands on Fang, flying away from the tower)
Cat Noir: He's gonna get there before us!
Ladybug: (pulling out her yoyo) Let's make sure he doesn't find what he's looking for.
