It’s been six years since Tenacious D‘s box-office bomb The Pick of Destiny — so what have the guys been up to? According to their new video, Kyle Gass was committed to an institution and Jack Black has become an adored Hollywood celebrity with a managable drug habit. But apparently nothing can stop them from being together and making rock songs about making rock songs. Boasting cameos from Dave Grohl, Val Kilmer, Tim Robbins and Josh Groban, “To Be the Best” foreshadows the D’s return this spring in long, drawn out and obnoxious form, which is probably what they wanted, though it doesn’t make us miss them any more.
Tenacious D’s new album, Rize of the Fenix, is out May 15 on Epic.
