History

Beginnings

Black and Gass, at the time respectively aged 16 and 24, met in Edinburgh, Scotland during the Edinburgh Fringe. Both at the time were members of the Los Angeles-based theatre troupe, The Actors' Gang.[6][7] While Gass initially felt threatened by Black, they eventually worked out their differences, and formed a band.[8] For other uses, see Edinburgh (disambiguation). ...

The band's name was derived from a term used by sports commentator Marv Albert about the tenacious defense of the NBA's New York Knicks.[7] The name was decided by the audience of the band's first live show, in 1994 at the now defunct Al's Bar. Other possibilities had included "Pets or Meat", "Balboa’s Biblical Theatre" and "The Axe Lords Featuring Gorgazon’s Mischief", which Gass described as being his personal favorite.[8][9] Attending that performance was David Cross; the performance led him to cast Tenacious D in his sketch comedy television series, Mr. Show.[2][10] Marv Albert (born Marvin Philip Aufrichtig on June 12, 1940, in Brooklyn, New York) is an American television and radio sportscaster, honored for his work as a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame and is commonly referred to as the voice of basketball. ...

Friendship

In an interview on BBC Radio 1 aired on January 18, 2006, with Colin Murray, Gass described Black as one of his best friends, adding that he is the godfather of Black’s son: Samuel Jason.[12] In an interview with High Times, Gass described his relationship with Black as being "pretty organic", and described Black as being "meaner" on stage.[13] In the same interview, Black posits that "pain and exile" were what brought the duo together.[13] When Gass was asked whether he felt jealously towards Black's film career in relation to his own, he responded: "If you're really friends with someone, you want them to be as successful as possible. And it hasn't hurt the band — it's helped us."[14] When asked if he and Black had fall outs, Gass replied "we still have our disagreements", adding "I think the fact that we do a lot of stuff outside The D helps to recharge the batteries and is kinda fun, so when we get together it’s great again."[15] BBC Radio 1 (commonly referred to as just Radio 1) is a British national radio station operated by the BBC, specialising in popular music and speech and is aimed primarily at the 14-29[1] age group. ... is the 18th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Television series (1997 – 2000)

Tenacious D premiered in 1997, immediately following an episode of Mr. Show. While a total of six episodes, ten- to twelve-minutes in length, were produced, only the first two were aired that year; the final four episodes did not air until the summer of 2000.[16] Although the show heavily featured Tenacious D songs, the tone and content of the series was very much shaped by collaborators Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, and director Tom Gianas. The show dealt with the trials and tribulations of a band trying to make it in the music business. Many songs that eventually were included on the band's first album were first featured on the show, though the episodes also contain songs that remain unreleased.

The six episodes were titled "The Search for Inspirado", "Angel in Disguise", "Death of a Dream", "The Greatest Song in the World", "The Fan", and "Road Gig". After the series aired, the band continued to perform. At a show at the Viper Room in Los Angeles, they met Dave Grohl, who remarked that he was impressed with their performance;[17][18] this led to their cameo in the Foo Fighters' "Learn to Fly" music video.[18] The popularity of Tenacious D further increased as they began to open for high profile acts, including Beck, Pearl Jam, and the Foo Fighters.[2] The Viper Room The Viper Room is a nightclub located along the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California. ...

First album (2001 – 2003)

Tenacious D, the band's eponymous first album, was released in 2001, and reached number thirty-three on the Billboard 200 on October 13, 2001.[19][20] While Tenacious D usually appears as a duo, the album was backed by a full band, consisting of Dave Grohl on drums and guitar, keyboardist Page McConnell of Phish, guitarist Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals, and bassist Steven Shane McDonald of Redd Kross. According to Black, they chose to use a band because "no one's ever heard us with a band".[21] The majority of the songs on the album, which was produced by the Dust Brothers,[2] were performed previously on their short-lived HBO television series.[22] Tenacious D is the debut album of the comedy rock duo Jack Black and Kyle Gass. ...

Although the critical reaction to the album was varied,[23] by 8 November 2005, it had achieved platinum status in the US. Entertainment Weekly described the release as being "hilarious", and "no mere comedy record".[24] All Music Guide wrote that the album "rocks so damn hard", but lamented the absence of some of the songs from the television show.[25] Splendid magazine remarked that "as entertainment, Tenacious D succeeds surprisingly well -- for the first few listens....

The first single from the album was "Tribute" — a tribute to the "greatest and best song in the world" which, in the song, Tenacious D claimed they had performed in order to save their souls from a Demon.

Two follow-up singles were released from the album. "Dio" was written as a tribute to the rock singer Ronnie James Dio, and mocked him somewhat for being too old, and asked for him to stop playing rock music and "pass the torch" to Tenacious D. Dio liked the song enough to let the band appear in the music video for his song, "Push". The music video for "Fuck Her Gently" was animated by Spümcø leader John Kricfalusi, the creator of Ren and Stimpy. An EP entitled D Fun Pak was released in 2002. It featured a skit and acoustic versions of "Jesus Ranch" and "Kyle Quit The Band", as well as a megamix by Mocean Worker.

The Pick of Destiny (2004 – Present)

In July 2004, the band started production on their film, Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny. Filming was delayed by almost a year due to Black being cast in Peter Jackson's big budget remake of King Kong, which was shot in New Zealand. While on location, Black continued to work on preproduction for the Tenacious D film and shooting for The Pick of Destiny started in July 2005 with director Liam Lynch,[29] who had previously directed the band's "Tribute" music video. Two months earlier, in May 2005, the band started recording songs for the soundtrack of the movie, which is their second studio album, The Pick of Destiny.[30] The second Tenacious D album had John Konesky on lead electric guitar and John Spiker on bass and backing vocals. Dave Grohl was once again called to be the drummer, and further lent vocals to "Beelzeboss (The Final Showdown)" as well as acting in the film, reprising the role that he played in the Tribute video as the Demon.

To coincide with the release of their new movie and album, Tenacious D embarked on their 2006–07 tour of the U.S., Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand. This tour, which stopped mainly in small theaters, included the band's first headlining date at a major arena, New York City's Madison Square Garden. Black has said that the band has lost money on the tour due to the cost of touring with a full band for the first time.[39][40] Both hometown concerts at the Gibson Amphitheatre were undersold. The band heavily promoted the album and film by performing on the daytime and late night talk show circuit, and appearing on the American Music Awards and Saturday Night Live. While Tenacious D had performed on Saturday Night Live in the past (usually when Black was the host), this was the first time the band was the musical guest.

Tenacious D started their second nationwide concert tour in 2001, playing at bigger venues, many of which sold out.[2] Until 2006, Tenacious D usually performed only with acoustic guitars and rarely performed with a full band. Tenacious D has staged two international concert tours, and numerous domestic tours,[44] though they have rarely played in non-English speaking countries. Black says this is because foreign concerts are "a little funky" because "the subtleties do get lost in translation".[45] In addition, he comments of the angst they experience before concerts saying: "We're always looking for a loophole. Pretty much every concert we've ever done, we're trying to find a way to cancel the show at the last minute."[45] Image File history File links Saxaboom. ...

Gass has described Tenacious D's comic assertion that they are the best band as being "ridiculous because it's a matter of opinion".[55] Black characterizes Tenacious D's comic nature as an antidote to "the masculinity of rock", adding "There's also something funny about the macho-ness of rock. Like the bands that are the fucking hardest rocking are like, 'We'll fucking kick your ass, dude. . . with our rock.'"[55]


Politics

Tenacious D are supporters of cannabis legalization,[56] and state their views on it in the song "City Hall",[13] describing those who blocked its legalization as "shrivs".[57] According to Black and Gass, Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny features them intoxicated on cannabis during the last scene.[58][59] In an interview, Black described his view that if drug use was legalized, the stigma attached to the users — making them in his words feel "naughty", would be removed which would make drug use seem mundane.[60] Black was the executive producer for a documentary about Randy Credico entitled Sixty Spins Around the Sun. It calls for the so-called Rockefeller drug laws to be repealed. Black said of it "They're populating our prisons with people, you know, first-time drug offenders -- Single mothers that have a little bit of coke end up going to prison for 20 years or something. It's just cruel and unusual punishment."[61] It has been suggested that Legal and medical status of cannabis be merged into this article or section. ...

Bush: "I don't read the newspaper; I just look at the news on Yahoo!
