If Tenacious D's 2001 debut album wasn't a formative part of your childhood, we probably wouldn't be friends. It's easy these days to think of Jack Black as an Eddie Murphy-style family movie mercenary, but in the glory days of Y2K, he and Kyle Gass were musical comedy gods, rocking their own hilarious HBO sketch show and blowing young minds like my own with obscene (and damn catchy) tunes like "Tribute" and "F*** Her Gently." And while they'd be the first to admit that they might have found themselves caught up in their own hype for some of this intervening time (in fact, it's largely the subject of their new album Rize Of The Fenix), they proved last night that they're still on top with a rocking and often filthy show at The Wiltern.

Nobody, anywhere, does Cinco de Mayo like L.A. does. Not in Mexico, where it's really not that big of a deal, nor in New York, where you can't get a good burrito to save your life. No, Cinco de Mayo belongs to us, and while that may seem like something to brag about, it's also a big responsibility. See, we don't automatically get to keep the title of Best Cinco City, and that means we all have to do our part by getting extra crazy on Saturday. Luckily, there's a million places throwing a million parties on Saturday, so whether you're motivated by good food, strong drinks, loud music, or some crazy combination therein, we've got just the fiesta for you in our 2012 Cinco de Mayo Party Guide.

It's sad to say this, but the days when hard rock music dominated the charts are a clear thing of the past. Do you know the last time a rock song was #1 for the year on the Billboard Top 100 charts? It was 2002, and it was Nickelback's "How You Remind Me", which doesn't even count because Nickelback is the musical equivalent of Nutraloaf. Still, we were at least able to briefly turn back the clock last night, as a slew of Rock Icons from years past (and a few movie stars, as well) showed up to rage last night at Club Nokia for the 4th Annual Revolver Golden God Awards.
