The discography of Tenacious D, an American comedy rock band, consists of three studio albums, one live album, one extended play (EP), five singles, two video albums, ten music videos and three other appearances. Formed in Los Angeles, California in 1994, the band is a duo composed of lead vocalist Jack Black and lead acoustic guitarist Kyle Gass, who perform with additional members during "full band" shows.[1] After signing with Epic Records, the band released its self-titled debut album in September 2001, which featured Dave Grohl on drums, Warren Fitzgerald on electric guitar and Steven McDonald on bass, among other contributors.[2] The album reached number 33 on the US Billboard 200 and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[3][4] Lead single "Tribute" peaked at number 4 on the Australian Singles Chart,[5] where it was certified platinum,[6] and number 9 on the New Zealand Singles Chart,[7] where it was certified gold.[8]

Tenacious D released its first video album The Complete Master Works in November 2003, which was recorded live during the promotional concert tour for Tenacious D.[9] The album reached number 2 on the Billboard Music Video Sales chart and was certified six times platinum by the RIAA.[10][4] The band's second studio album The Pick of Destiny, released in November 2006, served as the soundtrack to the band's first feature-length film Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny.[11] The album reached the top ten of the Billboard 200,[3] the Irish Albums Chart,[12] and the UK Albums Chart,[13] receiving a platinum certification from the Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA) and a gold certification from the British Phonographic Industry (BPI).[14][15] The album's only single "POD" reached number 78 on the Billboard Hot 100.[16] The band's second video album The Complete Master Works 2 was released in November 2008 and reached number 2 on the Billboard Music Video Sales chart.[10]

After a brief hiatus, Tenacious D returned in 2012 with its third studio album Rize of the Fenix.[17] The album was the band's most successful in terms of chart positions, reaching peaks of number 4 on the Billboard 200 and number 2 on the UK Albums Chart.[3][13] Later in the year the band released the single "Jazz", which registered on the Billboard Hot Single Sales chart at number 25.[18] In 2014, Tenacious D covered Dio's "The Last in Line" for the Ronnie James Dio tribute album Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life,[19] and in 2015 the group released its first live album Tenacious D Live.[20] The album reached number 2 on the Billboard Comedy Albums chart.[21]
