'New Tenacious D Album Is Better Than Jack White And Foo Fighters', Says Jack Black

Comedy rockers Tenacious D have ambitiously claimed that their new album 'Rize of the Fenix' is better than Jack White's debut solo album 'Blunderbuss' and the Foo Fighter's latest LP offering.

The band, who released their new record – the follow-up to 2006's film/album 'Pick of Destiny' – yesterday, are extremely happy with the new material they've managed to produced – so much that they reckon it's better than stuff from Jack White, Foo Fighters, Tom Waits and Gotye.

Speaking to Reuters, mainman Jack Black said: "I do love Jack White's 'Blunderbuss', I love the Foo Fighters, I love Tom Waits, his new record is incredible and Goyte. But our album is better than all of those, and because we're clowns, we don't get that kind of love. In a 100 years' time, no one will remember Gotye or the rest, but the shining beacon of The D, they're going to start religions after us.”

He went on to talk about his commitment to the duo, saying that although he may be a big-time actor, he always has time for 'the D'.

“I go and do some other stuff, but I always come back to the D, because it's the best stuff, it's the stuff I get the most satisfaction for,” Black confessed. “On Tenacious D island, all things are equal, me and Kyle are on level-playing fields.”
