I’ve been waiting for awhile to ask this question. Hopefully some Tenacious D fans will be along shortly to refute or support my theory.
The song “Tribute” is supposed to be a tribute to “the greatest song in the world.” But at no point is the greatest song ever eluded to, or mentioned.
I’ve read that the song is supposed to be “Stairway to Heaven.” This is theorized because some of the hooks in “Tribute” sound vaguely the same.
But, in the song, Jack Black clearly states that “Tribute” doesn’t sound anything like the song that “Tribute” is a tribute to.
I’m stumped. Anybody got any guesses?
