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