Tenacious D – The Pick of Destiny

Alt="Tenacious D Album Cover"

Tenacious D’s 2006 kitsch comedy film The Pick of Destiny and accompanying soundtrack will forever be a gem of rock history. The face melting jams from Jack Black and Kyle Gass are explosions of energy and personality, carrying powerful altruism for the awesome power of rock and roll. No other duo of profanity spewing, harmony wailing, axe shredding rock stars could pull off the ridiculous tunes that the D deliver on The Pick of Destiny. The 33 minute sophomore album detailing the hilarious duel with the devil sounds pristine on wax, and the satanic hymns get more infectious with every spin. In the words of Jack Black, his voice sounds “fuckin powerful.” Step aside School of Rock.
