Rock Your Face Off With Tenacious D

Rock Your Face Off With Tenacious D

Rock Band 2 fans looking for a chance to rock out with the band that forgot how to play the greatest song in the world should mark November 20 on their calendars.

That's the day that Tenacious D will be on Xbox Live, playing Rock Band 2 with Xbox Live Gold members to mark the recent release of their latest work, The Complete Masterworks 2. If you want to play, send a friend request to the gamertags JBTenacious and KGTenacious, and be online early: The action begins at 8:30 p.m. EST, and you need to be there at least a half-hour early.

Tenacious D was formed in 1994 by actors Jack Black and Kyle Gass, and released their first album in 2001. The first single, "Tribute," spun a tale of the band's encounter with the Devil, who demanded they play him the best song in the world or forfeit their souls; they did, improvising a song of such epic skill that the Devil granted them their freedom, but after the moment had passed they forgot how it went, so now they perform a tribute to it instead. "Tribute" remains the band's most successful single, although the duo also starred in a short-lived HBO television and a 2006 movie, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny.

DUDE! That is awesome!

I wish I had an xBox... and RockBand 2, and knew enough about time zones, to know when 8:30 EST is in proportion to GMT...

hint

GMT-5 is EST, I believe. I know GMT-8 is Pacific.

Shouldn't he be working on Brutal Legend, and not messing about playing games?

Still means bugger all to people outside of America - the Ps3 owners won't be able to play them, and the 360 owners won't have the game.

sweet tenacious d are awesome i going to watch it

I'm glad that Tenacious D will finally be present in Rock Band, but I'm upset that people with systems besides the 360 will not enjoy the rock-a-thon

Brutal legend is cancelled. Too bad cause the D is the greatest band of all time.

We are but men,
ROCK!

I'm prett sure their own imaginations don't count. When you get your ass handed to you in pure sound by a band that doesn't even exist, I doubt you can callm yourself the best.

Great, in Germany, Rock Band 2 will release on the 21st.....
