We've interviewed a lot of musicians on this show, but recently we got a chance to interview the greatest rock band ever in all of history. That would be Tenacious D, also known as actor Jack Black and his friend Kyle Gass.
CARL KASELL: We were joined by Brian Babylon, Charlie Pierce, and Roxanne Roberts and we began with Jack Black trying to describe what their music is all about.
JACK BLACK: Well, it's been said that we're a combination of Black Sabbath and who's the other band, Kage?
Now, on to our final game, Lightning Fill in the Blank. Each of our players now have 60 seconds in which to answer as many fill in the blank questions as he or she can. Each correct answer now worth two points. Carl, can you give us the scores?
CARL KASELL, ANNOUNCER: Kyrie O'Connor has the lead with four points. Brian Babylon and Maz Jobrani are tied for second, each has two.
