Arts: Music: Tenacious D, Pick of Destiny

Tenacious D, Pick of Destiny
By Najva Soleimani
      Tenacious D fans all around: I’m sorry. Pick of Destiny, in its own words, “totally sucks, motherfucker.”
      The first two tracks, Kikapoo and Calassico, get the head nodding. But if the music sounds familiar, it’s because Tenacious D sings over recognizable melodies sampled from artists like Nirvana and Dandy Warhols. This Tommy wanna-be rock opera follows the story of a boy leaving home to find Rock n’ Roll, in which Tenacious D uses more expletives than Limp Bizkit, and with about as much wit. That’s just shameful.
Rating: Queen does it better.
