To become the greatest band of all time, two slacker, wannabe-rockers set out on a quest to steal a legendary guitar pick that gives its holders incredible guitar skills, from a maximum security Rock and Roll museum.
Jables and Kage were living their lives when nuclear war breaks out. After surviving the onslaught by hiding in a 1950s refrigerator, they now must wander the post apocalyptic world in this Tenacious D extravaganza.
Two bumbling store clerks inadvertently erase the footage from all of the tapes in their video rental store. In order to keep the business running, they re-shoot every film in the store with their own camera, with a budget of zero dollars.
This is the story of a friendship that changes the course of rock history forever, of the fateful collision of minds between JB and KG that led to the creation of the precedent-shattering band Tenacious D, and of the two heroes' quest to find the fabled Guitar Pick Of Destiny...Written by
The scene with JB sleeping, on a bench near the beach, then being attacked by a gang of pin-striped hooligans is a direct homage to the "Droogs" in Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (1971). See more »
The "pick of destiny" is said to have disappeared for centuries, only to turn up in the hands of Robert Johnson at the turn of the century in the American South. However, Robert Johnson did not play the guitar using a pick - he plucked the strings with his fingertips. See more »

OK The Thing Is here that The was the best movie EVER and who ever says that it isn't then they are stupid. All though I do agree that If you've seen the HBO special then This isn't nothing new. But the thing is They don't show the Specials ever and more people listen to the D now so they made a movie witch was way more organized and better so people would under stand.
Plus the new album is like 10 times better then the Old one. Just because there are more songs LIKE SONGS in this one in the old one there where like 3 or 4 that were like "SONGS" like Tribute wonder boy Double-Team and City Hall. Still an awesome album ALL IN ALL THAT MOVING FLIPPING ROCKED
