15 Greatest Tenacious D Songs

Tenacious D

Posted by on

Tenacious D came from humble beginnings. The band was founded over Jack in The Box and guitar lessons in Kyle’s studio apartment. 20 years, 3 albums, and a movie later, and The D are still bringing their vulgar comedic rock to the masses. To get you ready for College Humor’s Comedy Music Hall of Fame, here are the top 15 Tenacious D jams of all time. Rock out with your…actually, please keep it tasteful. Let the D do the rocking.

15. “Double Team”

If you ever need the perfect song to get your other half in the mood, keep looking. This one gets creepy real fast.


14. “Low Hanging Fruit”

If only more guys were this honest about their dating prospects.

 


13. “City Hall”

This glam-rock laden tune is the ultimate protest anthem.


12. “The Ballad of Hollywood Jack and Rage Kage”

This epic rock opera-esque track tells the dramatic story of the men behind the rock.


11. “The Metal”

They may be mock rockers, but this tune reminds everyone that The D is metal to the core.


10. “Roadie”

Roadies are truly the unsung heroes of the rock world.


9. “Deth Starr”

As if we needed any, this song convinces us why we need to build a Death Star.


8. “Rise Of The Fenix”

This song needs to be on the next Game of Thrones mixtape.


7. “Rock is Dead”

The D reminds everyone how dead rock is by rocking their faces off.


6. “Beezleboss”

I’ll admit I’m biased because Dave Grohl is in this song, but it’s impossible not to headbang to this.


5. “Wonderboy”

If any superhero movies need a theme song, look no further!


4. “Master Exploder”

The D literally blows minds when they shred like it’s 1986.


3. “Kickapoo”

The perfect song for a family sing-a-long.


2. “F*ck Her Gently”

Every rock band has at least one romantic ballad. This isn’t really one of them.


1. “Tribute”

The song that started it all for The D. It’s not the greatest song in the world — no, strike that. It IS the greatest song in the world.

Inauguration Alternative

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
