Band Description
Tenacious D, or "The D" as they are also known by fans,[/URL] is an American (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenacious_D#_note-tenacious-d-are-the-d) satirical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satirical) rock band (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_music) duo composed of musician/actors Kyle Gass (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyle_Gass) and Jack Black (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Black). Their music fuses vulgar absurdist comedy with rock music (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_music) in a style that critics have described as "mock rock".

Tenacious D's music showcases Black's theatrical vocals and Gass' acoustic guitar playing abilities. Many of their songs discuss the duo's purported musical and sexual prowess, as well as their friendship and intake of cannabis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_%28drug%29). Their albums feature absurd and humorous sketches. Music critics have compared the storyteller-style lyrics of their songs to lyrics of rock opera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_opera).

The band first gained popularity in 1999 when they starred in the self-titled Tenacious D (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenacious_D_%28TV_series%29), a television series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_series) on HBO (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HBO), in which Black and Gass attempted to establish themselves as the "Greatest Band on Earth". The series airs occasionally on Comedy Central (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comedy_Central) and is available on their DVD, The Complete Masterworks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Complete_Masterworks). In addition, they have since recorded two albums, and starred in their own movie, Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenacious_D_in:_The_Pick_of_Destiny).

Beelzeboss is their best song.

Quoted for truth. It is an epic battle against the devil in the form of a song. How can this not be made of complete win.

Everything else they did was pretty good too. But I still prefer Weird Al ^_^.

Wonderboy and Tribute were good (the video for Tribute was nice too with Dave Grohl as the devil ;P). Can't say I've listened to much of their other music, though.

Wow, I just love Jack Black I think he is halarious. Also, I just watched Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny and it was really funny. Let me just say I like their beat but their Lyrix is kind of random but I think thats why I like thim.
