  • You two bozos don't even realize, you've just stumbled upon the darkest secret in the history of rock. I actually saw it once, I used to be a guitar tech, and the lead guitarist comes on, holding this weird looking thing, with horns on, made of green ivory or some shit. He starts shredding licks way beyond his capabilities. Like shit it had to be coming from somewhere else. It was the Pick, it wasn't him. He didn't know what he had, though. So at the end of the show he just flicks it back into the audience. Some kid catches it. Kid named Eddie van Halen. So I started researching it. I quit my job, moved to Rome, learned Latin. I came to the trust of the senior librarian at the Vatican, he called himself Signore Papadillo - He led me into some shit you wouldn't believe. You see this: It's an ancient scroll, all in Latin. I translated it. Took me six years. Turns out this thing goes deeper than you can imagine. Way deeper. Back to the Dark ages. See this: Long ago, a dark wizard used his power to conjure up Satan himself! Satanos - That's Latin for Satan. A horrific battle of violence ensued, but the ancient demon was far too powerful. Luckily, a blacksmith heard the Beast's roars. The Devil was drawn back into the fires of Hell, and the dark wizard was totally stunned to be alive. With a long draw of his hash pipe, the wizard sought a way to repay the blacksmith. The blacksmith loved a fair maiden, he gave her affection, but she rejected him, leaving him moist, and wanting. The dark wizard fashioned the demon's tooth into a pick, enabling the blacksmith to play the most masterful of melodies on his lute - Thereby winning the heart of the maiden he loved. The secret of the Pick died with that blacksmith, but then, poof, all of a sudden, it reappears back in the American South, at the turn of the century, in Robert Johnson's fingers, and sponsors birth of the blues, and rock 'n roll. The Pick is a tiny part of the Beast, and so it has supranatural qualities, a whole other level above super.


  • I am complete! Yes you are fucked, shit out of luck, now I'm complete and my cock you will suck! This world will be mine, and you're first in line, you bought me the Pick and now you shall both die!
  • Fuck! Fuck! Fuck, the Demon Code prevents me, from declining a rock-off challenge... What, are your terms, what's the ca-aatch??
  • I'm the Devil, I love metal! Check this riff it's fuckin' tasty!!!!
  • I can't wait to take Kage back to Hell! I'm gonna fill him with my hot demon gel, - I'll make him squeel like my scarlet pimpernell!


(Opening verse)
Narrator: (Jack Black) (A long-ass fucking time ago, in a town called Kickapoo, there lived a humble family, religious through and through, but lo! there was a black sheep, who knew just what to do - His name was young J.B. and he refused to step in line; a vision he could see of; fucking rockin' all the time - he rode a tasty jam and all the planets did align!)

[Jables meets Kyle and Carmen]
Jables: Yeah! Yeah! Dude, that was like, the best thing I have ever seen! Who are you?

[KG has gone off to chat with some extremely underage teen girls]
Jables: Fucking dick-squeezer!
[A strange-looking tramp dressed in a long dark coat, carrying a crutch, limps up to Jables and sits down dramatically and painfully in the chair next to him, knocking over a glass as he does so. Jables looks weirdly at him]
The Stranger: Hi.
Jables: Hi...
The Stranger: So... [swipes at a fly] What brings you to this neck of the woods?
Jables: What?
The Stranger: Let's just say... you don't seem like "rock 'n roll" types to me.
Jables: Well, we're not, we're just two businessmen going to see some shit in Sacramento, sorry.
The Stranger: Yes... yes. It's just... I couldn't help noticing... the guitars... in the back of your car. [Steals leafleft about Rock 'n Roll Museum when Jables turns his head]
Jables: Sorry, we're not, we're just businessmen, we sell guitars, so what, end of story, check please!
The Stranger: [Examines leaflet, Jables has scrawled Break in here on it] So... how are you planning... on breaking into the Rock 'n Roll History Museum?

[Jables falls painfully into the air shaft]
Jables: Damn, that was all KG's fault! If he'd been here we wouldn't have messed up we would've got in nice and quiet. But now he's going to come back and be like "Can I be in your band now?" and I'll be like "No way cockshagger."
KG: It's KG can you hear me?
Jables: Yea, yea I can hear you loud and clear. You're saying bros before hos, but that's now what I wrote, asshole!
KG: I'm here
Jables: [notices a guard walking in the room right underneath him] Listen, I can't really talk right now shut up!
KG: I'm in the air-vent, dude.
[they both look at each other in an awkward moment]
KG: Dude, I totally missed you.
Jables: Me too.
[the floor beneath them suddenly gives way and the air-vent crashes down onto the floor of the museum. With them in it]

[The Mic Host announces Tenacious D]
Mic Host: Since the beginning of Time, 'twas written in the stones that one day a band would come. Well now, that band has come, and they are here to come again... In your ear-pussies. Ladies and gentlemen, Tenacious D.

[At their first concert]
Jables: So whassup, we're Tenacious D, and this is like our first concert ever, so it's pretty historical!

The Stranger: I had it, the Pick of Destiny, I had it clutched in my fingers. But then I tripped, set off a laser, a security door came down on my leg. I would break in again, if I still had my leg. Ooh man, ooh, I do miss that sweet-ass leg of mine.
Jables: Why're you telling me this?
The Stranger: Because I like you! I see that sparkle in your eye which I once had. Here, let me show you something. (Slides paper under toilet door) This will help you, I promise you. These two air ducts on the roof. Speak of this to no-one!
