Tenacious D Wants a Festival with All the Comedy Rock Greats (Weird Al, Conchords, Spinal Tap, et al.)

Jack Black and Kyle Gass, members of the comedy rock outfit Tenacious D, spoke to Rolling Stone today on their 20th anniversary as a band, and they laid out plans to hold a festival featuring all of the biggest names in comedy music. Dubbed "Festival Supreme," it's "a fuckin' Super Bowl of comedy-rock" in the vein of Coachella or Bonnaroo taking place on the Santa Monica Pier on October 19th of this year. Nobody's been booked for the event beyond Tenacious D, but Black rattled off his dream list of performers, which includes Flight of the Conchords, Lonely Island, Zach Galifianakis, Spinal Tap, Eric Idle, Tim Minchin, Neil Hamburger, Tim and Eric,  Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, and Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Obviously, that's a pretty lofty list, and Jack Black readily admits that most of them probably won't do it, joking "Now there's no guarantee who's gonna be on the bill – it might just be Tenacious D and Weird Al." That's good enough, though, as Tenacious D and Weird Al proved on IFC's Comedy Bang Bang last year that they make one hell of a supergroup (video below):
