Tenacious D Return With Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game

Tenacious D – the self-proclaimed “greatest band in the world”, comprised of funnymen actors Jack Black and Kyle Gass – have finally released a recorded version of their viral, fan-favourite live cover of Chris Isaak’s 1989 hit single 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 Tenacious D collaborator Taylor Stephens and featuring our dynamic duo in a glorious, romantic romp by the sea, is out now as well. Check it out below:

The duo will also be the special guest at this year’s Video Game Awards, happening on 25th June at the Hollywood Bowl, where they will, indeed, be performing their aptly-named new song Video Games.
