Tenacious D’s Nigel Tufnel Top Ten Tracks…tonight on the LeBrain Train

The LeBrain Train: 2000 Words or More with Mike & Friends

Episode 110 – Nigel Tufnel Top Ten-acious D Tracks

This is just a “tribute”!  Well, no, not really.  But it will be great fun regardless.  Thank Uncle Meat, as he arranged this week’s episode and guest himself.  Tonight, Meat and Kevin from Canadian Grooves are joining me to talk about the notoriously tenacious comedy-rock duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass.  The greatest band in the world?  Perhaps — which is why we’re doing Top 11 lists of this band’s greatest songs.

The duo met in 1986 and started playing gigs 1994, with their name a reference to the basketball term “tenacious defence”.  Their demo led to the short lived TV series, befriending Dave Grohl, and eventually their debut album in 2001.  It’s been pure legend since!

Sourcing tunes from their four albums, many singles, HBO TV show and more, you can count of lots of laughs tonight.  As usual, you’ll want to catch this live!

        1. Absolutely. In the early days of people schizophrenically editing videos or movies to post online, inserts from the Tenacious D album were incredibly common. Assloads of samples from that record to replace character dialogue. That was over a decade ago! Back in the 00s.
