Fat Kid Rules the World tells the story of Troy Billings who is contemplating ending his life on the platform of a NYC subway on the Lower East Side in 2003 when he's stopped by Curt MacCrae, the only semi-homeless punk rock god in W.T. Watson High history. Curt MacCrae has an idea for a new band, Rage/Tectonic, and he's certain that Troy is the missing drummer he's been looking for, regardless of the fact that Troy is obese, extremely anxious, and incapable of playing the drums.

As they make Rage/Tectonic the greatest punk band of all time and Curt's tumultuous home life becomes increasingly uncertain, Troy is forced to bring together a band of outsiders to try and save Curt MacCrae from himself.
