    Your first thoughts after hearing about Jack Black being the front for a rock band would be he is doing a parody. But, his band is actually good and he can sing. The lyrics are pretty funny as well.

    Who thought that Tenacious D would be so fun to listen to (as long as you don't mind the strong language). With Jack Black's awesome voice and Kyle's funky acoustic guitar skills, makes this album (and the band) a really good one. Yes, Tenacious D is 'the best band in the world'.

    It's hard to rate Tenacious D's self-titled debut, while it's well made and relatively funny. You can't help but think why would they make this album. Did Jack Black really sell his soul to the devil to write "greatest song in the world" or was he just bored. Regardless it's a fun listen.

    Hardest and funniest rocking I've ever heard... Can listen to it all day, every day. Best band, period. Nothing else to be said. Long live the D!

  1. Take away the insane lyrics, and you’ve still got music worth listening to. Granted, it sounds like Journey being raped by Ronnie James Dio, but you have to admit that’s intriguing.
  2. Not since Bob and Doug McKenzie have two jokers nailed the clod-metal aesthetic so accurately: Nearly every lyric here comes straight from your high school's bathroom wall.
  3. They're profane, bursting with rage and lust, and they deliver more laughs than anyone since Richard Pryor.
