Jack Black Announces Tenacious D's Post-Apocalyptic Rock Opera

December 19, 2017

A post-apocalyptic rock opera by Tenacious D? Take our money now!

While appearing on CONAN, actor/musician Jack Black confirmed a rumor that has plagued the music community for tool ong, "Will there ever be a Tenacious D rock opera?" And of course the answer is "yes."

"We're working on a rock opera. It's a post-apocalyptic musical comedy, and the idea is that you know, you've got Pink Floyd The Walland you've got Tommy [by] The Who, and those are the only true rock operas in existence. You hear rock opera all the time. There's only two rock operas. Ours is gonna go right there, somewhere in there, and all of the other 'supposed rock operas' can suck it! 'Cause they suck."

After a moment of hearing himself, Black then contemplates. "Why did I get so mean?"
