About this album

The Pick of Destiny is the second album by the American hard rock band Tenacious D. It also serves as a soundtrack for the movie Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny. The album was released on November 14, 2006 through Epic Records, and debuted at number eight on the Billboard 200.

The Pick of Destiny is the band’s first studio release in five years, following up their 2001 self-titled debut, Tenacious D. The album was produced by the Dust Brothers’ John King and features appearances by Meat Loaf, Ronnie James Dio, Tim Robbins, and Dave Grohl.

Another album, More Rocktastic Music from the Film, contains the score music that the soundtrack excludes.

In the absence of original comedy skits, there are excerpts of dialogue from the soundtrack’s accompanying film between numerous songs. Portions of The Pick of Destiny were recorded at Dave Grohl’s studio. A clean version of the album was recorded.

The album was released in three separate edits: a “clean” radio edit featuring re-recorded vocals replacing foul language with non-sense words, a “dirty” edit featuring the full film versions, and a limited edition. All three versions feature clips from the movie, but some dialogue was re-recorded for the clean version. The special limited edition was released in a cardboard “old book case”, which includes a digipack version of the album, a foldout poster depicting the D and Sasquatch, eight tarot cards from the film (Tenacious D, The Training, Destiny, Masterpiece, The Quest, The Divide, and Two Kings, as well as a card explaining the other cards), and a plastic replica of the Pick of Destiny. If the set was pre-ordered from the Tenacious D website, it also included a t-shirt.
