the_pick_of_destinyThe Pick of Destiny is a ridiculously funny cult rock and roll comedy about the fictional origins of the musical duo known as Tenacious D and their search for fame and fortune. As would-be rock and roll legends, Jack and Kyle seek out Satan’s legendary guitar pick with the hope of winning a local talent contest. Eventually confronting Satan, a deal is struck, and the terms of a “rock off” are agreed upon. Filled with musical insider jokes and a clever mix of satire and absurd humor, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny is a self-referential fan letter to an existing fan base who have delighted in their music since the band formed in 1994 (Klaus Ming May 2015).
