Top Ten Best Tenacious D Songs

The Top Ten
1 Tribute

After listening to the fan collab and the rereleased 1995 demo remaster, I think it's safe to say that I have been a fan of the D since the very beginning, when their debut 2001 album released when I was in high school. Tribute is one of those songs that got me through hard times, such as my dad passing away. It has powerful-but-funny lyrics, great voices coming from both JB and KG, and the absolute eargasm that is the "Nay! We are but men!" part and the ending, and I listened to that album all the time until my mom got sick of it, even when I was playing Pokemon or studying for a test. The followup albums, the Pick Of Destiny soundtrack, Rize Of The Fenix and Post-Apocalypto were great, too. I have one last thing to say. Long live the D. Your socks have officially been rocked off.

2 Beelzeboss

When someone says that Tenacious D is satanic, I would just reply with "These guys beat the Devil in a rock-off challenge in this song. They deserve a special spot in Heaven." This song is probably the reason why The Pick of Destiny is one of the greatest 2000s musical comedy movies of all time, and it still remains as a cult classic to this day. When I first saw this movie back in late 2006, I just broke down laughing at the scenes with Dave Grohl as the Devil and the whole final battle scene was worth it. The Pick of Destiny is pretty much a reminder that just because it has stupid comedy, it doesn't mean that it's a terrible movie. This was peak Jack Black back in the day.

3 Master Exploder

I gotta say Master Exploder is the best song ever, even better than tribute or beelzeboss, the worlds best song by far, I mean he doesn't need a microphone!

Absolutely Brilliant! This is a lyrical masterpiece with amazing riffs and solos - definitely #1 material.

Tribute is good, but it doesn't light mics on fire, and it doesn't literally blow minds.

4 Kickapoo

This is pretty much JB's backstory in song form. He is from a well-off religious conservative family who hates rock music, yet when he plays the "tasty jam" to his family, he gets spanked and grounds him for a week. So he prays to Dio for guidance and Dio tells him to run away from his family and his hometown to travel to Hollywood, where he will meet KG in the end. Such a powerful song for a simple backstory.

Great song, the first song I ever heard and really liked from tenacious D, and the clip is just awesome!

5 The Metal

I'm sorry but I don't like this song, one they say R. Eally good music genres when it should of been like this

Pop tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were smite to the ground
Country tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were stricken down to the ground
Rap tried to kill the metal Ha, hahaaha
They failed, as they were thrown to the ground

No one can destroy the metal
the metal will strike you down with a vicious blow
We are the vanquished foes of the metal
we tried to win for why we do not know.

My fave line in this song. No one can destroy the metal... until you realize that a former member of a famous grunge band is playing the drums. But still, good song.

6 Wonderboy

This song not only is incredibly captivating, but it also is beautifully written, as well as rather funny.

A classic, epic that is sung with vocal soul.

Awesome! God how I miss these guys...

7 The Pick of Destiny

This song really is great. Jack Black's vocals on this song are the best I've ever heard in my life. I'm not exaggerating at all. Just listen to it.
Top 10 Favorite Tenacious D Songs
1. Tribute
2. POD

5. Kickapoo
6. The Metal
7. Classico
8. Drive-Thru
9. Inward Singing
10. Rize Of The Fenix

I think this is the best song. Honestly not trying to sound negative but Tribute just shouldn't even be in the top ten. It's either this song or Beezleboss for me!

8 F*** Her Gently

This song was a playlist staple for every one of our house parties in college. It was a party anthem akin to Bohemian Rhapsody. Every one of us would passionately and dramatically sing every word of this song to our girlfriends for the entire crowd to behold.

Some say their eyes are still rolling to this very day, like boulders cascading down a never-ending hillside.

This song inspires me every day. I've been listening to it around 50 times a day since I was 4 and I still love it! It's also helped me so much in day to day life and I would personally like to thank Jack Black and Kyle Gass for this incredible feat of engineering in relation to rock music!

9 Rize of the Fenix
10 Roadie

This song is amazing, definitely the best song from The Rize of the Fenix, and one of their best songs overall. It's just so good, so good. Jack Black's voice continues to astound me.

This song is absolutely epic to all possible ends. It is both awesome, hilarious and beautiful

The Contenders

This song is actually quite beautiful. Jables' singing is amazing and the lyrics are pretty cool. Really underrated song!
