Tenacious D Information Continued
Tenacious D is a duo with history. Jack Black met 24-year-old Kyle Gass when he was 16 in Los Angeles in 1985 when they were members of the "The Actors' Gang" theatre troupe. Black and Gass did not get along at first, but eventually worked out their differences. Later, Gass taught Black to play the guitar and they eventually formed the band. While both can sing and play the guitar, Black is billed as lead singer and Gass as lead guitarist. Black has stated that until the film School of Rock, he had played only acoustic guitar.
Tenacious D released their self-titled debut album in 2001. For their first album, they enlisted the help of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, keyboardist Page McConnell of Phish, guitarist Warren Fitzgerald of the Vandals and bassist Steve McDonald of Redd Kross. The Dust Brothers produced the album. The first single off the album was "Wonderboy", which has since become popular on both college radio and modern rock stations. The video was directed by Spike Jonze. The second single is the band's signature song "Tribute" a tribute to the "greatest and best song in the world", which they once played to outwit a demon, but have since forgotten. Ben Stiller has a cameo in the music video, as Black grabs his arm while passing by. Also appearing is Dave Grohl, as the demon.
