Jack’s Tenacious Day

Jack Black w/ Tenacious D

The GTC is thrilled to be wishing the great musician & actor Thomas Jacob Black a Very Happy 44 Years Of Life. 

We thank you, Jack, for all the music and laughs your duo (w/Kyle Glass), Tenacious D, has given us for going on 20 years now. Just the sight of you with a guitar in hand is enough to make anyone want to get ready for trip to Chuckleville…

We’d also like to say thank you for all the great films! But we think a few truly exemplify who your are.

  • Nacho Libre (’06)
  • School of Rock (’03)
  • Tenacious D & The Pick of Destiny (’06)
  • High Fidelity (’00)
  • Kung Fu Panda (’08)
Now some wise words from your own  mouth…
“There’s nothing you can really do to prepare to rock. Do you prepare to eat a delicious meal? Are you hungry? Then you’re gonna eat it.” – Jack Black

“The movie Spinal Tap rocked my world. It’s for rock what The Sound of Music was for hills. They really nailed how dumb rock can be.” – Jack Black

“We’re in the dark ages if J-Lo can have a music career because of her ass. And let’s face it, that’s it.” – Jack Black

“Don’t be celebrities, because then you go cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, You don’t want that, do you?” – Jack Black

“If Beethoven and Bach hooked up with Mozart and made a band, they could be a distant runner up to The D.” – Jack Black

Well said Sir Black of The D!
