This is Just a Tribute: Bluegrass Wrecks the Music of Tenacious D
What’s heavier than heavy? What’s more metal than metal? Tenacious D, of course. Armed with acoustic guitars and mighty steeds, J.B. and K.G. trample the past as they ride into the future. When TV couldn’t contain them, this dynamic double team took to the road, spreading their musical gospel to lands far and wide. The release of their big-budget movie brings the story of the D full circle. Rock. On.
Heavy metal with electric guitars? Too obvious. The D doesn’t do obvious. And neither does this tribute. The acoustic magic of Jack and Kyle is bolstered with the most epic weapons in bluegrass: banjo, mandolin, and fiddle. The Dust Bowl Cavaliers are perfectly matched like Tango and Cash for these mythological interpretations of Tenacious D’s greatest songs. Remember: this is just a tribute to a tribute.
