Tenacious D return with Danny McBride (Kenny Powers) as the greatest roadie of all time

May 9, 2012

“Van Halen… Metallica… AC/DC… the Ice Capades…” That’s right—The D has finally found a roadie with a resume worthy of their standards.

Danny McBride (Kenny Powers from “Eastbound and Down”) stars in the third and newest video for Tenacious D‘s “Rize of the Fenix.” Unlike the the first two singles we’ve heard from “Rize,” “The Roadie” is a brooding rock ballad about roadie appreciation and life on the road, cut from the same cloth as Jackson Browne’s “The Loud Out” and Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page.” Except here the roadie’s job is immortalized with the lyrics, “get that fucking shit up on the stage.”

Also, Val Kilmer is back even though Kyle Gass just shot him to death in the first “Rize of the Fenix” video, “To Be The Best.”
