I'm currently listening to Tenacious D's eponymous first album, and I've got to say every time I hear it I'm amazed. 

Not only is it some of the funniest stuff I've ever heard (Tribute being my personal favorite) but it's actually pretty good musically too.  If you like that sort of thing that is.  I guess I do. 

Speaking of good music, I listened to the new Johnny Cash box set, Unearthed.  I guess I'd never fully appreciated Johnny Cash.  What a great collection of music.  Some of the modern rock songs he covers are truly fabulous, and there are some great duets.  I love his cover of Marley's Redemption Song with Joe Strummer, and his cover of Nine Inch Nails Hurt is possibly one of the saddest and yet most beautiful songs I think I've ever encountered. 

I'm getting all this through Rhapsody, but I might just have to shell out for Unearthed (which just happens to be available on iTunes).  So much media, so little time.

Tenacious D is awesome, Grohl on drums is especially awesome. Make sure you listen to Johnny Cash's last album, The Man Comes Around, it has a ton of really good covers including that NIN cover. (Personal Jesus is an awesome cover)
