Product Overview

The Pick of Destiny is the soundtrack to the upcoming New Line Cinema comedy, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny. The movie, an epic musical adventure that follows The D on their quest to obtain the Pick and become The Greatest Band on Earth.

The album, produced by the Dust Brothers' John King (Beck) and mixed by Ken Andrews (Pete Yorn, A Perfect Circle) and featuring guest appearances by Dave Grohl (drums), John Spiker (bass) and John Konesky (guitar), spotlights fifteen Tenacious D songs and dialogue highlights from the movie. Among the record's many standout tracks are "Classico," fan favorite "History," and "Kickapoo," a song written specifically for the film and guest-starring Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Meat Loaf and legendary metal singer Ronnie James Dio. The latter appears in the film's opening scene, in which a ten-year old Black (played by Troy Gentile) serenades his ultra-conservative, very religious family with a rocking rendition of "Kickapoo," a song whose lyrics would make a sailor blush. When his father (Meat Loaf), who believes rock and roll is the devil's work, unleashes his belt and shows him no mercy, tearing down all of his beloved rock posters, the young Jack Black implores Dio, one of his rock gods, for guidance. Dio reassures him that he is on the right path but must leave his stifling home environment and go to Hollywood to "find the secrets of his art." The album is led by first single "POD" and its companion video. The clip was directed by Liam Lynch (Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic), who also directed the film and shared writing credits with Black and Gass.

Author Tenacious D
Artist Bio
This Los Angeles, USA-based comic rock duo, affectionately known by their fans as the D, is the creation of actors Jack Black and Kyle Gass. The two met at acting class and decided to form their own spoof rock band, making their live debut in 1994. The duo went on to appear on several alternative comedy shows before making their film debut as Tenacious D in 1996's Bio-Dome. Guest slots on the HBO sketch show Mr. Show With Bob And David and Saturday Night Live cemented the duo's burgeoning cult popularity, and in 1999 they were awarded their own HBO series. Ultimately, this only ran for three episodes but gave a first airing for many of the duo's songs.
