Tenacious D are back are ready to kick ass! After the relative failure of ‘The Pick of Destiny,’ Jack ‘Hollywood’ Black became more awesome and Kyle ‘Rage Cage’ Gass went nuts. The two went their separate ways and never repaired their divide, until now. Check out this update from Extra’s Maria Menounos on what’s happening wih the ‘D’. Actor Tim Robbins, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, singer Josh Groban all take part in the resurection of the band, and Val Kilmer even takes a bullet before the big two week hug. ‘Rize of the Fenix,’ the first album from Tenacious D in six years, will be released on May 15. But until then hail the f**king return of the ‘D’ with this video and the title track in its entirety.
