Something You Should Know uncovers a tribe of people, a pop culture phenomenon known as "Duranies" and is also a glimpse of the band's influence, the fans' behavior, and explains the band's relevance during the last 30 years. The film follows several individual fans as they celebrate the return of the original line up of the band and the rebirth of their teenage years. Throughout the film we are introduced to "Duranies" like "Durandy" an extraordinary memorabilia archivist and collector whose collection can be seen at the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. Also "Vader Vader", who may have the largest Duran T-shirt collection in the world and we also meet "Duranimal", a fan whose intense loyalty includes collecting used cigarettes butts, beer bottles, and a piece of a hot dog eaten by a band member in 1985. Also interwoven throughout the film are exclusive Duran Duran performances and interviews from fans whose careers who have been influenced by the band including Moby, Kelly Ripa, Carson Daly, BareNaked Ladies, Dido, Jonathan Davis of Korn, plus Adrian and Tony of No Doubt. Unlike any other fans in rock and roll, "Duranies" are fueled by the bands music, but have maintained a unique fan culture based on community, loyalty, and most of all enduring friendships.
