Dave Grohl has had one of the most prolific careers in rock history. Beyond fronting the Foo Fighters and drumming with Nirvana, the one-time hardcore punker has a dizzying resume of collaborations that includes everyone from Nine Inch Nails and Tony Iommi to Queens of the Stone Age and Killing Joke — and dozens more. However, for all of his successes as a serious-minded player, one of Grohl's most cult-adored pairings is with the hard-rockin' comedy duo Tenacious D. The "Everlong" songwriter drummed on every song on the D's beloved 2006 album, The Pick of Destiny, and notably played Satan himself — the No. 1 enemy of Jack Black and Kyle Gass — in the accompanying musical film.
The record — also featuring Ronnie James Dio, Meatloaf, John. C Reilly and Paul F. Tompkins — features many of Tenacious D's most popular songs, including their sizzlingly heavy ode to genre we know and love, "The Metal." In 2010, Grohl reunited with the band for a set BlizzCon and sat behind the kit for every song, including the blistering, "The Metal," which features some mind-bending rhythms that Grohl busted through in a hair-whipping frenzy. The band are joined on stage by costumed warrior knights who duke it out mid-song, but the star of the show is the guy keeping the beat pounding nonstop. Check it out above via YouTube.
