Despite an epic soundtrack, and truly bizarre direction from The Sifl and Olly Show creator Liam Lynch, Tenacious D's tragically under-appreciated feature film, The Pick of Destiny, tanked at the box office.
Since then, the self-proclaimed greatest band in the world dropped out of view. But it's about to release a new album this spring, Rize of the Fenix.
To pimp it, the D just released a trailer that is part E! True Hollywood Story, part Hollywood satire and part Team America: World Police montage scene. And Val Kilmer gets shot in it.
The band may be funny, but with chops like these, Tenacious D is no joke.
