But a San Diego-based band called Rookie Card is doing the same thing with Black to skewer the cult of celebrity unique to indie rockers and movie stars.
Rookie Card frontman Adam Gimbel once met Black at a club after Gimbel had jokingly criticized Blacks band Tenacious D in the press.
But in the song Namedrop on his bands new album Whats on Second?, Gimbel sings that friends are always demanding that he Tell me the Jack Black story again/ Ive only heard it two dozen times.
Says Gimbel, Everyone knows people like that; the kind who you ask how theyve been and they tell you who theyve met. I even knew a guy who used to say he saw George Harrison [at the beach] all the time.
He adds: Cmon, no one saw George Harrison ANYWHERE all the time.
