There is no shortage of musical comedy acts. But Jack Black is much more than that; he is a comedy rock god (OK, more like one of its eager apostles). Whether he’s rocking out in a movie, during a major Hollywood awards show or touring the world as half of the legendary Tenacious D, Jack Black’s musical hilarity never disappoints. Check out 8 of his most epic performances.
8. Kathleen Turner Overdrive
Because you can’t rock your hardest all the time, Jack shows off his range with this Marvin Gaye cover. Excuse us while we go light some candle and set the mood.
7. Kiss from a Rose
There should have been a special clause that allowed Jack to be named the most supreme American Idol in the history of ever.
6. Get off the Stage
Those damn Oscar winners really do need to know when to wrap it up. This rocks purely on principle alone.
5. Kickapoo live at BlizzCon
The D’s performance at Blizzcon was part Spinal Tap, part video game and all awesome.
4. Conan Guitar Battle
Conan makes a big mistake by talking ill of The D, but an even bigger blunder was getting caught using a ringer for this rock challenge.
3. School of Rock
If Jack Black had been our teacher, our attendance record would have been MUCH better.
To become the ultimate rock god, one must take on Satan himself.
1. AC/DC “Back in Black” Cover
This cover rocks so hard that we may have gotten whiplash while typing this.
