Actors Who Sing: Jack Black
BAND The duo Tenacious D
ALBUM Tenacious D, 2001 (EW Grade: A)
SOUNDS LIKE… A souped-up, deliriously dirty version of mock-rock faves Spinal Tap
THE LOWDOWN Black (pictured, right, alongside brother-in-rock Kyle Gass) proves that he’s got the voice and the guitar chops on a handful of ”crank up the volume” songs. And like any great metal band, D’s even got a power ballad: ”F— Her Gently.”
MEMORABLE LYRIC ”And then you say, ‘Wait a minute, Sally/ I think I got something in my teeth/ Could you get it out for me?’/ That’s f—ing teamwork!” (”F— Her Gently”)
DOWNLOAD THIS ”Tribute” is a hilarious tune about going face-to-face with the devil, who demands the band play the greatest song in the world. It’s also surprisingly rockin’ — you’ll find yourself head banging and playing air guitar.
