Homer realizes that he can make money from boy bands and decides to start one, the members consisting of Bart, Nelson, Rod, Ralph and Roy. But there is a problem when only one member of his boy band can sing - Ralph. Nigel, the manager of the group, decides to overcome this by recording Ralph's voice on five different harmonies and the band is named 5 From Field. Martin is the only person who figures out the band is fake and challenges them to perform live at Springfield Elementary. Immediately before the performance, Ralph announces he is quitting the band for a solo career, hence saving the members from humiliation. Soon after, everything returns to normal, except Rod is still enjoying his fame.
