Tenacious D, or "The D" as they are known by their fans, is an American rock band duo composed of musician/actors Kyle Gass and Jack Black. Their music fuses vulgar absurdist comedy with rock music in a style that has been described as "mock rock".
Tenacious D's music showcases Black's theatrical vocals and Gass' skill in playing the acoustic guitar. Many of their songs discuss the duo's purported musical and sexual prowess, as well as their friendship and intake of cannabis. Their albums feature absurd and humorous sketches. Music critics have compared the storyteller-style lyrics of their songs to lyrics of rock opera.
The band first gained popularity in 1999 when they starred in the eponymously titled Tenacious D, a television series on HBO, in which Black and Gass attempted to establish themselves as the "Greatest Band on Earth". The series airs occasionally on Comedy Central and is available on their DVD, The Complete Masterworks. In addition, they have since recorded two albums, and starred in their own movie, Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny.
