Tenacious D The Metal Lyrics

Last updated: 06/29/2012 11:00:00 AM

You can't kill the metal
The metal will live on
Punk-Rock tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were smite to the ground
New-wave tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were striken down to the ground
Grunge tried to kill the metal Ha,hahahahaha
They failed, as they were thrown to the ground
Aargh! yaow! [x2]


No-one can destroy the metal
The metal will strike you down with a vicious blow
We are the vanquished foes of the metal
We tried to win for why we do not know

New-wave tried to destroy the metal, but the metal had its way
Grunge then tried to dethrone the metal, but metal was in the way
Punk-rock tried to destroy the metal, but metal was much too strong
Techno tried to defile the metal, but techno was proven wrong

It comes from hell!

u mad bro? | Reviewer: life of liminality | 6/28/12

We're just supposed to enjoy the awesomeness of this song, and laugh about it. If you get mad at this song you've basically lost. Lost what? Oh ho ho ho would have to ask wouldn't you.


And wow, Dave Grohl played the drums on this one, well that just proves my point.

@TheWhiteShadow: I have never bashed another band. Not even The Jonas Brothers or Justin Beiber. Do I like them? Not particularly. But there ARE open-minded people who realize that music is a beautiful thing. It's what feelings sound like. If someone suggests a song for me to listen to, I don't ignore it based on who sings it. Yes, there are bands I like, and ones I don't care to listen to. But I don't bash them or REFUSE to listen to them.

As for this song, love the idea! Metal is truly a genre that can't be killed. It's always changing. You have bands like Disturbed and Slipknot keeping it heavy, and bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Metallica finding ways to be creative and experimental. With all it's subgenres (metalcore, nu-metal, avant-garde metal...etc.) it's too widespread to take down. Thank God, eh?

Stupid Humans... | Reviewer: TheWhiteShadow | 6/27/10

isn't it funny how there are a lot of douchebags that think they are superior commenting about how "don't you have anything better to do than read reviews about a song" when obviously they were doing just that before sharing their infinite wisdom with everyone? XD "you could be doing something better like not sitting at your computer writing reviews about a mock band" or my favorite, "now quit reading reviews and do something better with your life" now what were they doing at the time that was SO productive? Typing a review for some lyrics in the internet after reading other reviews. The very same thing you and I shouldn't be doing because we all need to "get a life." lmao

And to all the ones who say "its just a song. If you like it, you like and if you don't, you don't," cut the open-minded act. there is no way you can honesty say you have never bashes on another song. we're all fuckin hypocrites so get used to it lol

Metal is IMMORTAL! | Reviewer: Chris P. | 4/22/10

You can't kill the Metal!
I can't kill the Metal!
Any and all who try will be smite to the ground!
The Metal ... will live on!
Honestly, in my opinion, Metal is the greatest type of music! Its so versitile and doesn't need to be honed down to one theme. When you play metal guitar, you can shred your heart out emotionly over a love theme, keeping it metal and not too lovey-dovey. Or you can get brutal and start a mosh pit with some fast, angry riffs.
For metal drumming, you can play slow and heavy with an adventurous theme, or go for a more thrash-style and add in endless amount of fills. Vocal wise, you can use powerful voice like Dio, go screamo, or use a low, growling, death metal voice and yelling out the most gruesome stufff you can come up with. Thump repeatitive basslines or get original and have some bass solos in your songs. Add violins, or eastern instruments like System. Endless posibilities... Metal! It comes from HELL!!

The Metal will live On. | Reviewer: Valentinez | 4/20/10

I'm the Devil I love Metal!

Jack Black loves the Metal thats why he wrote this song, cause the Metal will live on.

And he explains why.

If he wanted to Bash the Metal,
he would be thrown to the ground!

Or he would have sang it in a country tune. Duh.

are you guys retarded | Reviewer: bluberryness | 4/18/10

have any of you ever seen the tenacous d movie or have any idea what the band is about? their not trying to insult anyone. they just like acting ridiculous in public and making funny songs, and people love them for it. All of you are over analyzing this way to much. If you look for a deeper meaning in any songs by Tenacious D your stupid. Its a song, let it go.

OH WOW | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/28/10

I seriously can't believe how everyone is making a scene out of a lyric page.
Sure, Tenacious D is not the average metal band or any of that sort but it still rocks!
And i honestly don't believe it's a mockery of metal.
I think Tenacious D is taking Metal to the Jack Black level!

nerdz... | Reviewer: someone | 11/13/09

dont you guys have something better to do then complaining? I agree hes an idiot to think this is not metal but you'r just as dumb to think he will care about what you think. Go out and get some fresh air or something, make something with your life. and dont write any fucking complain about this comment cuz im probobly wont visit this site anymore, im just here to see the lyrics. now if you excuse me i think i will thake a walk in the park listening to the D thanks to my ipod (you should get one) Bye!

A little correction. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/6/09

I think that there should be "Punk-Rock tried to kill the metal But they failed, as they were SLAMMED to the ground". "Slammed" not "smite". English isn't my native language but I clearly hear the -ed ending. Best Wishes. :)

fuck The haters !! | Reviewer: !!! briana !!! | 10/23/09

<33 - briana =D

Calm Down and Cool Off! | Reviewer: DaBigFatMuffinMan | 9/23/09

The metal is, in my opinion, one of the greatest songs in metal history. That said, Tenacious D is, as WTF put it, a mock band. That means that they are not a REAL metal band. They make parodies on metal itself, unlike Weird Whatshisface, who makes parodies on the song itself. Jack Black is an ACTOR! NOT A MUSICIAN! Yes, he can sing and play guitar, but he started acting before he began making music. So you cannot complain if you don't like it. It's amazing enough that he makes songs, with a real band, and really goes on tour, but it's still not the same. The song is meant to be funny. So, quit arguing, calm down, and cool off.

This has been a Public Service Message. Now quit reading reviews on a mock band and go do something with your life.

3 Simplicities | Reviewer: WTF | 6/16/09

ladies, gentleman, and people favoring metal today, lets get three things perfectly clear....1)this a song, not a political speech or anything,but simply a song, 2) why are you people arguing and making this song contreversal, if you like the song, you like the song, and if you don't like the song, you just don't like the song...simple as that. 3)As you've read from previous reviewers, Jack Black and Kyle Gass together make Tenacious D, what is Tenacious D? A MOCK BAND, THATS WHAT. Im not saying that you should like their songs, but dont complain about them if you dont like them. Jack Black doesn't care that you don't like this song, do you think he is gonna give a care in the world if you dont like the song? i dont think so, he's the one making the money...not you. So what im trying to get across is that you shouldn't waste your time writing a bad review about this song or any other song because it is a waste of your time that you could be using to do something like hmmmm i dont know, lets see....NOT SITTING AT YOUR COMPUTER WRITING(OR TYPING IF YOU WANT TO GET TECHNICAL ABOUT IT) BAD REVIEWS FOR THE SONG AND ITS LYRICS.

thank you for your time.
