Video: Tenacious D Are The ‘Best’

Posted by on March 26, 2012

So did you hear that Tenacious D have a new album coming out? Their third album, Rize of the Fenix, will be hitting stores on May 15th. How did their first album in six years come to be? Well, if you watch the awesome video for “To Be the Best,” it involved Kyle Gass going to prison, Val Kilmer, Dave Grohl, and Josh Groban. This 6-minute  video is exposition-heavy, which is fine, because it’s also hysterical. As far as the song itself, it sounds exactly like the ’80s training montage that the title suggests. You can also check out another snippet of music from Rize of the  Fenix here, and check out some sweet tour dates below.
