The duo Tenacious D whose name came from a phrase used by an NBA broadcaster who was talking about a defensive play. Jack Black and Kyle Gass both actors formed the group in 1994 in Los Angeles.

The then fictional band had a show for three seasons on HBO with many guest musicians making appearances on their show. They did get an album deal back in 2001 signing with EPIC Records along with a full band including former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.
