We're admittedly a little late to collating last month's best pictorial work, but hey, we've been busy with a number of festivals this month. Still, it's hard to forget May; between early summer tours and a trip to The Gorge, there wasn't a second to spare. That's why we just had to yank the spotlight back some. Don't get too nostalgic - most of these acts are still on the road! Event: M83 at Chicago's Riviera Theatre (5/4) Photographer: Heather Kaplan [...]

How many men can say they've played in front of tens of thousands of people while standing in front of a giant inflatable cock'n'balls that have been painted to look like a fiery bird of prey? Jack Black and Kyle Gass can. That's just how Tenacious D roll when it comes to the Main Stage at Download Festival 2012. [Show as slideshow] [...]
Leave it to Jack Black and Kyle Gass to have provided the best stage prop of Sasquatch! 2012. In honor of their recent album “Rize of the Fenix,” and a symbol of the duo’s return to musical comedy rising back up from the ashes, a gigantic phoenix was positioned at center stage. But we all could see the use of a phoenix (particularly its neck and body) was really just an exceptionally clever way to place what looked like an enormous cock and balls in the middle of their performance.

Artist: Tenacious D Title: Tribute Link Text: Tenacious D - Tribute File Name: 03_Tribute.mp3 Bitrate: 128 kbps
For years, Jack Black and Kyle Gass have sailed through their career on a comedic wave of foot-stomping, energetic and deliciously self-loving, anthemic rock n’ roll. Since announcing that a new album was in the works in 2008, they've kept us waiting and for a while it looked like it wasn’t going to happen. Had a herd of pigs flown through the sky to, low and behold, a sudden growth of maturity in the band? An epiphany perhaps? But, no fear of that, ever-serving, Tenacious D are back, and back with a bang. Rize [...]
The final day at Sasquatch rounds out a weekend of musical bliss.
Olds dominated the big debuts last week: Slash and The Cult. Six Feet Under, Sonata Arctica, Kill Devil Hill, Saint Vitus, Firewind and more also broke into the Top 100 of the Current Hard Music chart while Tenacious D and Shadows Fall maintained in Week 2. 1 SLASH FEAT. MYLES KENNEDY & TH - APOCALYPTIC [...]
Be warned: I may use the term "Show of the Day" more than once. You're now more prepared for the final day's review of Sasquatch. I shall now get right to the music. The Sheepdogs opened the day with a bang. "Show of the Day"! Didn't think it would come that early did you? Well, here's why they're contenders for that title: They rocked so hard at noon on the final day of a four day music festival that people started randomly log-rolling down the gorge conjuring images of [...]
Filed under: Concerts and Tours , News , Exclusive Chona Kasinger This past weekend, dozens of bands headed to beautiful Gorge, Wash., for the annual Sasquatch festival.

Beck performed with a famous 'Jack' at this weekend's Sasquatch! Music Festival, but it wasn't the one he just recorded a single with. Rather, Mr. Hansen's encore featured Jack Black and Kyle Gass, AKA Tenacious D , who aided in performances of “Mutherfuker” and “E-Pro”. Watch fan footage below (via 107.7 The End ) Stay tuned for our complete recap of Sasquatch! 2012. And, if you haven't already, pick up a copy of Beck's new Jack White-produced 73 through Third Man Record's website .
If you search my iTunes account for "Jack Black," you'll find results in two separate areas: comedy films like School of Rock, and hidden in the music of a band known as Tenacious D. Their music has the distinction of being the only band on my entire iPod listed with the genre I call "comedy [...]

"A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men." -Willy Wonka Bruce Springsteen - "Rocky Ground" Typical Springsteen images of urban decay and social struggle are given a new context behind the hip-hop flavor of Wrecking Ball 's second single. CHAPPO – “Hell No” (NSFW) I would have loved to see the Craigslist casting call CHAPPO put out for this video. Hot Chip – “Night and Day” Now I know what all those [...]
Despite debuting with his first Number One on the Top Albums chart with 77,000 copies, Adam Lambert 's album " Trespassing " is the lowest debut amount this year. It is the smallest sales total for a number one album since August 2011 when Adele's " 21 " sold 76,000 copies. It does however, replace fellow American Idol graduate Carrie Underwood , who falls to #3. Old School Metallic-Comedy act, Tenacious D 's " Rize Of The Fenix " debuts at #5 with 44,000 units sold.

There weren't a whole lot of metal debuts last week, but the few new records that did come out all landed with a splash. After the jump, sales numbers from Tenacious D, Godsmack, Hot Water Music and Shadows Fall. As always, the rankings are from the "Current Hard Music" chart. 1 TENACIOUS D - RIZE [...]
Adam Lambert 's Trespassing has sailed to the #1 position on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week, marking the American Idol alum's first chart-topping LP. (Previous offering For Your Entertainment peaked at #3 in 2009.) This gives the "Never Close Our Eyes" crooner the distinction of being the first openly-gay singer to top the main album chart in the US, according to the Village Voice 's math , with a single-artist title. Another interesting tidbit: this marks the first [...]
Tenacious D are making fruit sexy. Jack Black and Kyle Gass have released a video for "Low Hangin' Fruit"; a tribute to the ladies who don't rank higher than a 5 on the hot scale.

Their new album, Rize of the Fenix , is out now.
