Wait till you find out Jack Black is the lead singer of Tenacious D

I don’t think you can know what Tenacious D is and not know that’s Jack Black.

Wait. Which one is Jack Black again?


Smodphan t1_j67dv8r wrote

Hes the guitar

No, Meatloaf was the motorcycle.

This guy was in a lot of memorable movies like Fight Club, American Psycho and Requiem for a Dream. But now he is the "Morbius guy" and I think he deserves that.

I credit requiem for a dream waaaaayyy more than any other education as keeping me the hell away from hard drugs.


gypywqoOO t1_j6cghhd wrote



kevlarbuns t1_j6dcgdr wrote

Yeah, there were definitely some stark moments. The hell of withdrawals and falling into OD were poignant, as well as just the behavior of all the addicts towards each other. And themselves.

I think requiem was so effective because it showed the banality of addiction. Nothing super stylized. Just the hell of having your entire life revolve around feeding the addiction your brain places above all other things in life, and there’s not even a close second. Friends, family, partners, children, they are all far down the list when your brain is slamming you to feed the addiction.

Same, and I’ve known Thirty seconds to mars for awhile now. Like how did I not know this sooner?


thebiggestpinkcake t1_j68tdr4 wrote

I only learned this roughly 2 years ago. Not everyone knows every detail of every band/musician on their playlists especially when they only like one or two of their songs. On my old ipod I used to have like 3,000 songs by different singers/bands of different genres. It would be incredibly exhausting and time consuming to research everything about everyone of them.


Phunny t1_j698oor wrote

I am not meaning offense at all. TIL so much stuff that I know in passing is not commonly known. A great reason for this subreddit.

mjr4189 t1_j6fdzlx wrote

Yeah, separate the artist from the art if you can, that’s a personal prerogative.


Soccham t1_j6jmgjo wrote

Doesn't that just enable shitty people to keep being shitty?


mjr4189 t1_j6jncx7 wrote

Yep, that’s why I said it’s a personal prerogative. Personally I have trouble separating the two things, but not everyone does. I was just responding to an obvious attempt to gaslight, but wasn’t going to get into a debate with someone who supports abusers.

Link it up. If this was a about the cult thing, last I heard that was a joke everyone was in on, but I didn't do any of my own reading or thinking.

Is it weird that I respect the honesty of this?


Teckschin t1_j66i4oa wrote

Lol I get it. I remember having a moment at work a while ago to read into, but it was some shallow reading and I didn't have time to verify anything. It's also about Jared Leto, so I didn't care at all to revisit it.


double_positive t1_j65w40z wrote

Just my opinion, but that still makes him a bad person if that is true.


FLdancer00 t1_j685oyw wrote

I want a link as well. I've worked for them, not that it means I know every facet about the guy, but I'm skeptical.

loaded-diaper-4lunch t1_j65n3ab wrote

I was at a concert years ago, right before he won his Oscar, and a very young girl was pulled up on stage along with myself. We spent time on stage and back stage during the concert. After the show he talked with the few of us and we left, while the young teen stayed. That's when I knew he was gross.


thewidowgorey t1_j65q0kc wrote

I remember reading people’s personal accounts about his creepy shit waaaaay back in the day on Livejournal.


bolanrox t1_j65ju8z wrote

so we shouldn't feel bad he got the shit kicked out of him in Fight Club?


disownedpear t1_j65om9z wrote

Also satisfying watching him get an axe to the face in American Psycho.


kellephant t1_j66f4ii wrote

I truly think the only role Leto has been in that deserves some serious credit is when he played a junkie in Requiem For A Dream. That’s it.


HamsterKarlie OP t1_j65j2hb wrote

I just know him from American Psycho and as the Joker and Morbius. Jared Leto the actor. Jesus Christ today I'm learning more about Jared then I ever cared to know that's awful

OsakaJack t1_j67a14e wrote

When he was just a skinny weird kid. I think the best thing he did was start a band with his brother.


And then he decided MORE weird was the way to go. And went all in.


oniiichanUwU t1_j65qig9 wrote

The band is pretty good though. The Kill is one of my all time favourite songs and the music video is based off The Shining. Shame he turned out to be such a creep. He’s a great singer and he is.. certainly an actor 🥴

You really should not watch that documentary he did about trying to get out of his record contract. And it's EARLY days of his ego before it spiraled out beyond orbit. Back then he was just a douche canoe.


LemonSneakers t1_j6750fh wrote

Someone just learned this today?


OsakaJack t1_j679cdo wrote

I was a fan of the band and it totally slid past my radar Leto was in Fight Club or in TV during his teen years. I only knew him as one of the guys in the band. And then he was in some movie I happened to see and I was like, this guy is taking this acting thing pretty seriously for a singer. IMDB quickly educated me on his library of work.

Also, I think he has spiraled out into Hollywood stupid* with his ego these days. He needs to quit the acting thing and get back to a real job, aka the band lol

*Hollywood stupid: when the money and fame convinces you that you truly are a magic being sent to deliver art or whatever. Marlon Brando, Michael Jackson, etc.

tryingtodefendhim t1_j672nhn wrote

Long before 30 Seconds to Mars had any hits on the radio, they opened for Puddle of Mudd. We booed them after 2 or three absolute shit songs in a row. They passed their demo CD out to the crowd and we all passed it right back to them.

Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not a 30 seconds to Mars fan at all, but you surely aren't implying that Puddle of Mudd is a superior band, right?

Holy shit, I completely forgot that he was in this band. I met them at the pier in Buffalo NY, in the parking lot when they were putting their cards on people's windscreens and me and my friends went out of the venue to get high after their set. The venue was small enough that the music and stage could still be seen from the top of my truck, so we didn't miss anything else really. Pretty sure one of the girls I was with ran up to him and hug jumped him. I am thankful for this post to bring back some good memories.
