Set after the events of Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, the story follows the Wyld Stallyns as they're sent back to hell, this time by Satan himself. There, they'll have to play a fantasy RPG (think Dungeons and Dragons, Bill and Ted-style) to save the band and their souls. Along they way they'll run into their old pal Joan of Arc, occultust Aleister Crowley, and many others including, we kid you not, Doctor Feelgood. Mötley Crüe air guitar!
