Tenacious D is a popular rock comedy duo comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass. The pair has been performing since 1994 but didn't release a self-titled debut album until 2001. The popularity of Tenacious D really caught on with the release of its movie/soundtrack combo The Pick of Destiny. It has continued to release albums since then, including 2012's Rize of the Fenix and 2018's Post-Apocalypto. The band's live performances are an unforgettable experience that leaves fans laughing hysterically and rocking their hearts out.
Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny
Tenacious D began performing at bars in 1994 when its only song was "Tribute." This song would later be recorded to become the first single off of its self-titled debut album and an inspiration for the plotline of The Pick of Destiny. The D quickly became popular locally, which led up to the duo having a three-episode television series before its first album was even released. After the success of Tenacious D, which peaked at No. 33 on the Billboard 200, the pair began work on a film. Tenacious D toured in support of 2006's The Pick of Destiny for a few years before following up with Rize of the Fenix. Most recently, the popular comedians released Post-Apocalypto in 2018. Jack Black has announced that Tenacious D is already working on a fifth album, but it likely won't be ready until after 2020.
