* InTheStyleOf: "Tribute" is clearly meant to sound like a shorter version of [[Music/LedZeppelin "Stairway To Heaven."]] In a roundabout way, the band are calling that song the greatest in the world.

In 2001, Tenacious D gained notoriety for releasing the extremely bawdy [[UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash animated short]] {{music video}} by ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' creator Creator/JohnKricfalusi for the song "F-- Her Gently" which was featured (alongside ''HappyTreeFriends'') in that year's annual Festival of Sick and Twisted Animation. ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuck_Her_Gently NSFW]], naturally enough.)

** One song starts with the line "This is a song called The History of Tenacious D." It's actually just called History.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The phoenix on the cover of "Rize of the Fenix" is a [[GagPenis penis]]. This hasn't gone totally unnoticed, though. For example, the cover is censored on Amazon and Spotify.

* SubliminalSeduction: "Karate" ends with a reversed sound clip of Jack Black saying something along the lines of "eat donkey crap".

** Played straight with "39" off of Rize of the Fenix. Hell, it would be a great radio song if it weren't for all the cursing and lyrics about Jack Black fingering his own anus.

* RefrainFromAssuming: "Tribute" is often misnamed "The Greatest Song in the World", which it is merely a tribute to.

* ObsessionSong: "Lee", a song dedicated to their obsessive fan Lee. Yeah, you got that right, they wrote an obsession song for a fan to freak him out so he would stop obsessing over them.

By the time the band signed to a label in 2000, they had a pretty high profile thanks to Black's acting work. Backed by a DreamTeam of musicians that included [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Dave]] [[Music/FooFighters Grohl]] on drums and guitars, OingoBoingo guitarist Warren Fitzgerald, bassist Steve [=MacDonald=] and Music/{{Phish}} keyboardist Page [=McConnell=], ''Tenacious D'' showed the band maturing into an outright metal band while still retaining the acoustic guitars and perfecting their outrageous humour and parodies. Split between full band-reworkings of songs from the TV series, a few new songs and comedic skits, the debut blew the minds, kicked the asses (with karate!) and rocked the socks of everyone who ever heard it, and provided the band with its SignatureSong: "Tribute", a tribute to "the best song in the world" that the band played to defeat Satan but promptly forgot afterwards. ItsALongStory.
