Biography


Way before Jack Black became famous as an actor, he was a musician. He met Kyle Gass in 1989 as they joined a theater troupe called The Actor's Gang in Los Angeles. Black was the main musician for the group and he found something in common with Gass that prompted him to form a band with him. They exchanged skills, Gass teaching Black guitar and Black teaching Gass acting.

As a duo, they first covered songs by other established artists and went nameless up to 1994. They even let the audience at a bar to decide what moniker they should use, giving them such choices as Balboa's Biblical Theater. Tenacious D did not get the most votes but the duo "forced it through". Tenacious D recorded their demos and distributed them to various labels.
