YMMV: Tenacious D
YMMV tropes for the band:
- Awesome Music + Funny Moments: Most of what they do.
- Fridge Brilliance: Wait... Tribute is a tribute to the song they play near the end of Beelzeboss! Except it did not go exactly as they portray it in Tribute.
- Well he DID say they couldn't actually remember much about the song they performed.
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: "Dio" is a lot less funny after the man himself died of stomach cancer in 2010.
- Though it remained an awesome tribute to the man, and was regularly played in memory of him.
- Memetic Mutation: "Nay, we are but men...ROCK!"
- Nightmare Fuel: While what was played in Tribute ends up turning out awesome or funny, the concept of what the duo went through is pretty nightmarish. Imagine you are just minding your own business, all of the sudden, the Devil comes and demands you play the best song in the world, or he'll eat your souls. There's no guarantee that what you sing next just happens in the best song in the world, so 99 out of 100 chances, you are going to have your soul devoured. Not a fun thought.
YMMV tropes for the TV series:
- Awesome Music: Again - it's Tenacious D!
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The over-the-top karate fight from "Angel In Disguise" is basically the boys as human cartoons.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Lee's I Have Just One Thing to Say moment at the end of "The Fan," and then his Power Of Friendship song, "Special Things," with KG and JB.
- Cult Classic
- Crosses the Line Twice: Many of the songs on this show, but particularly "Sex Supreme" (aka "Double Team").
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Lee, from "The Fan."
- Ho Yay: Jack and Kyle
- Idiot Plot: "Road Gig." The whole reason the plot happens is because they intentionally take an incredibly long way around to get to their gig... instead of just going a few blocks across town. This is all Played for Laughs, though.
- Love It or Hate It: Its combination of Surreal Humor, profanity, and their ironic take on rock & roll cliches is still a bit polarizing to this day.
- Nightmare Fuel: The Lee montage, set to the song "Lee," which involves the boys following Lee everywhere and then stabbing him to death. Yeah, it's a fantasy sequence, but god-damn.
- Retroactive Recognition: Of course, Jack Black became incredibly popular over the next decade.
- The Woobie: Poor Sasquatch. Caught in a bear trap, then rejected by his new friends.
