Since that is your only requirement, duct tape.

Powder nailer is the first thing I thought of. You'll need the #1 cartridges, most likely.
You can also use toggle or molly bolts, or you can hammer in concrete nails by hand.

I always used a couple cut nails to hold it in place and Liquid nail. The Liquid nail is so good, if you try to pull them off, the wood will stick to the block.

I'd vote for spray foam from a can.

I have always used fluted masonry nails with the liquid nails. Hard to beat that combination.
