Tenacious D – the greatest band in the world, comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass – have finally released a recorded version of their viral, fan-favourite live cover of Chris Isaak’s ‘Wicked Game.‘ The cover comes on the heels of the band’s first new song in five years, ‘Video Games,’ which has been streamed nearly 15 million times in less than a month.
A video for the cover of ‘Wicked Game,’ directed by longtime D collaborator Taylor Stephens and featuring our dynamic duo in a glorious, romantic romp by the sea, is out now as well.
Tenacious D will also be the special guest at this year’s Video Game Awards, happening on June 25th at the Hollywood Bowl, where they will, indeed, be performing their new song ‘Video Games.’
