Tenacious D have officially released a cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” which has become a fan favorite at the duo’s live shows. Along with the studio track, an accompanying music video depicts Jack Black and Kyle Gass romping on the beach in their usual hilarious fashion.

Offering up a play on the original Chris Isaak music video, which depicted the crooner getting hot and heavy with supermodel Helena Christensen on a tropical beach, Black and Gass frolic in the ocean wearing a one-piece bathing suit and tighty-whities, respectively. It’s truly a sight to behold!

Tenacious D recently completed a brief US outing, and will now embark on a run of European shows and festival appearances. The tour kicks off Friday (June 2nd) at Rock im Park in Nuremberg, Germany, and runs through a June 18th gig at Hellfest in Clisson, France. The D will then return to the States for a gig at the Video Game Awards on June 25th at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Pick up tickets to the band’s upcoming shows here.


“Wicked Game” follows the recent release of “Video Games,” Tenacious D’s first new original song in five years. Prior to that track, Black released the viral single “Peaches,” a ballad from The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
