what does everyone think of the group called 'tenacous d'? this is the group that actor Jack Black is in. they had a top ten (in the australian charts) with Tribute about one year ago. does anyone know when they are going to come out with a new single???? i have noticed that on their album, there are about 20 songs on it. whats the delay?
please discuss!

:) thanks :)

They aren't releasing another single from that album. The guys are working on a movie.

Tenacious D song was WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY overated by everybody. One of the worst singers/groups to ever make the top 10, and considering I'm including black people in that assessment, that's really saying something....
Modest to the top.

and have you actually heard their stuff Cale? Or are you one of those people who hears 1 song by a band and figures that's enough to judge how good/bad they are?

Speaking as a musician, Tenacious D are an awesome band. Their songs are all instantly catchy, their guitar work is fantastic. I don't know how they are "overated" considering nobody really rated them until they heard that song. For a comedy duo/group to hit the charts is pretty rare.. i can't recall a comedian making the top 10 in australia since Denis Leary's "asshole" (unless Liam Lynch's "united states of whatever" made it).

Loved Tribute, it's me and my besties song, except we can't figure out how to sing that little nonsensical interlude that goes do de do do do do do de do do do do do do...you know that bit.

Nice tat edge!

I do want to get the Masterworks DVD - it has their TV series on it too doesn't it! I wanna see that.

Hanging out for the Pick of Destiny. Its taken a while for it to finally get in cinemas though. Its about bloody time though. More music from the D will be very welcome.

Tenacious D are awesome, the best rock band EVER IMO.

I shouldn't admit this, but my best friend calls me KG. NOT cause I'm fat and bald.
I'm looking for Sarah Connor.
