Anyone else listen to them? Personally, I love em. I think they have a solid line-up, and David Grohl has a great voice in my opinion. Not to mention their songs are amazing. Everlong, DOA, Best of You, and especially heartwarming, My Hero.

And on top of all this, their videos may very well be some of the funniest things I've ever seen. Learn to Fly is my all time favorite video. I can't watch it without cracking up every time. And it's got Tenacious D in it! What more could you ask for?

And their new album. I'm looking forward to it. The Pretender is a pretty kickass song, so I'll probably buy the album when it comes out.

My favorite band for years, and a huge fan still. David Grohl not only has the greatest first name ever, he also has a great voice, and plays drums often for Tenacious D. Favorite song- Learn to Fly. Not a big fan of everlong, but it's on my Ipod.

Learn to Fly has been my favorite song for as long as I can remember. Sadly I never got a chance to buy their albums, but the songs I have heard were enough to make them my favorite. However, Electric 6 is catching up to them. As is The White Stripes.

Got my copy of the album today. Here's what I think:

The Pretender: Amazing song. Nuff said.

Let it Die: Starts off slow. But the second half is great.

Erase/Replace: Great song. Pretty loud.

Long Road to Ruin: This song sounds a lot like some of their older stuff. I love it.

Come Alive: Once again, starts off slow, second half turns out amazing.

Stranger Things Have Happened: Very laid back song. I believe it's completely acoustic guitar, so that's probably why.

Cheer Up, Boys (Your Make Up is Running): The title makes me lol xD But it's a great song, sounds kinda like earlier albums.

Summer's End: Again, sounds like some of their older stuff. Pretty good song.

Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners - Just guitar. No words or drum. Good guitar, but kinda repetetive.

Statues: Drums + Piano usually makes a good song. Kinda boring, but every album has it's slow songs.

But, Honestly: This one starts out really slow and quite, but then EXPLODES into something MUCH louder. Amazing <3

Home: Nothing but piano and vocals. Most boring song on album, still not too bad though.

Once & For All: Personaly I love this song. Guitar isn't too loud or soft, but it's good. And of course, Gohl's vocals are what make this song amazing.

All in all, a great album. Has it's ups and downs, but I defintaley recommend it. Another thing though, they suddenly seem more...political? Emo? Dunno the right word for it, but the lyrics deffinatley sound different.

They're okay, despite not being my cup of tea.

Everlong, My Hero, and Times Like These

All get props.
