Wasn't sure if this should go here or in Questionable Quotes.

Read this on IMDB news a long time ago and decided I disliked Jack Black.

Watched School of Rock last night and thought, maybe he was just being his usual nutty self, and not being serious about anything, but still, it's not something anyone should joke around about...

Jack Black Loves Satan
9 July 2002 (WENN)
Actor and music star Jack Black is an unashamed worshipper of Satan - and even attributes the success of Star Wars to the dark lord of hell. Black, star of Shallow Hal, who is now touring with his rock two-piece Tenacious D, believes the Devil to be more preferable to the "boring" celebration of Jesus Christ - and is also integral to the worldwide popularity of Star Wars. Says Black, tongue firmly in cheek, "I love Satan. Christianity is so boring. If Star Wars didn't have that evil imprint, they wouldn't sell two tickets. Satan sells tickets. That dude, Darth Maul, he was down with Satan. Put it this way, Satan loves to party, he loves to f**k and he loves to eat rich, delicious food. Actually that sounds a lot like Kyle Gass (his bandmate)."

I really don't see the problem here. Unless you're upset out of some religious viewpoint - which would be rather silly in this case.

Well if he does worship Satan, he probably would not have defeated him with the Greatest Song in the World.

Just for kicks :

quote:
Tenacious D -Tribute


From the album "Tenacious D"

A long time ago...me and my brother Kyle here,
We were hitchhiking down a long and lonesome road.

All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon,
in the middle of the road.

And he said, "Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your soul."

Well me and Kyle, we looked at each other, and we each said...
"Okay."

And we played the first thing that came to our heads
Just so happened to be, the best song in the world.
It was the best song in the world.
Oh, yeah.
Oh, and it saved our butts, because the demon want to kill us.
Oh.

But he was forced to set us free, by the honor code that demons...
Have to live by.

Cause it's Satan's Surprise and it's magic!
And it's a mystical disguise...
It's the devil's song and it's tragic!
You are the mystical-eyed virgin and you're rocking!

Well needless to say, the beast was stunned.
Whip crack, went the swampy tail, and the beast was done.

He asked us, "Be you angels?"
And we said "Nay! We are but men, rock!"

This is not the greatest song in the world, no.
This is just a tribute.
Couldn't remember the greatest song in the world, no.
No! This is a tribute, oh!

To the greatest song in the world, alright!
To the greatest song in the world, alright!
It is just the best motherfuckin' song, the greatest song in the world.

--skattin'--

Oh mama, Lucifer.

And the peculiar thing is this, my friends:
The song we played on that fatefull night,
didn't actually sound anything like this song!

This is just a tribute.
You've gotta believe me.
And I wish you were there.
Just a matter of opinion.
Ah! Fuck!
Good god! And God lovin!
There's no surprise to find you can't stop him!
Rich motherfucker...

I don't understand why "it's not something anyone should joke around about".

mouse goddess, I too thought it was "whip crack went his whippy tail", which is so much better. I'm going to keep singing it that way.

Ehm... why not? [Big Grin]

Seriously, I think you probably haven't met many "Satan worshippers" if you think that equates with some kind of virgin sacrifice ceremonies to cast evil spells on people - that's Hollywood. The real life satanist people (mostly LeVayists, really) are more like Manson fans with too much time on their hands and a hardon for old naturistic and animalistic pagan beliefs.

Few of them are truly "serious about it" in the sense that they tend not to believe in the existance of any particular higher power - but I have met a few chicks (no men, oddly) who were very deeply into the spiritualistic bonding with the earth kind of aspect of it. If you ask me they should have become Wiccans instead, but I digress.

Basically, "Satanism" is not only harmless but fine to joke about, imho.

actually the lyric is "whip crack went his ROPEY tail" Y'know, the demon's tail was like a rope.

I googled the lyrics for the song. All the sites that had the lyrics listed agreed that the line is:
"whip, crack went his schwumpy tail."

Go figure.

http://www.amiright.com/misheard/artist/tenaciousd.shtml says it's "rumpy tail" (among other things, haha), and a google search will show that "rumpy tail" is actually a term, click below -- the link also points to some d lyrics sites with "rumpy tail".

Ha ha - Morissons Lamnet - I know. I've met a few Satan worshippers and they are all totally rubbish! I was expecting more than the dorks with goth clothes and jewellry I got.
And I agree with the person earlier who queried if it was soething we shouldn't be joking about. It only isn't if you believe in him etc.

I love Jack Black. He is curiously sexy...

I don't think they would be keen on some aspects of Wicca.

Some rituals, it requires them to be "in the buff."

Then again, theirs so many books on Wiccans, I have no idea which is true, and which is pure commercialism.
