I’m not a huge Tenacious D
fan… You’ll never catch me at a live show of theirs (unless it’s open bar on John Silva), wearing a T-shirt of theirs or even owning an album of theirs… but hey, I get the joke. I’ve even prank called em, you can buy that on fuckin’ Itunes, put it in your pipe and smoke it.
So yep, the star of KING KONG (the re-make of the re-make) Jack Black and the other fat dude, better know as the rock-duo Tenacious D are back…even though their last work defined commercial flop. That kinda shit doesn’t matter cuz one of is famous and they are both friends with Dave Grohl (which is like having a get outta jail free card in the music biz).
Read on for the teaser via SoundCloud.
Tenacious D’s first and self-titled record (backed notably by Dave Grohl on drums and guitar in the studio) stayed just below the radar the whole time, propelling Black’s career forward. Even though almost every song has a some phallic-references and self-referential lyrics, the 14-yr old me bowed in reverence.
Two years after managing to carry School of Rock, the music went south with Tenacious D The Pick of Destiny. Nothing had changed from their style, but everything seemed that much less original. So now I’m left wondering if another Tenacious D record will start an upswing for Jack Black…or if he’s truly squandered his legacy to the point where even brave KG can’t save him.
If you’re really excited about this, chances are it’s been years since you’ve touched a girl… fix that.
