Tenacious D have taken on one of finest songs ever written, and made it completely their own.
‘Wicked Game’ by Chris Isaak has become a contemporary staple, a song that is so heartbreakingly perfect that it is impossible not to love it.
And it’s become a go-to for many a band when they want to deal out a cover.
But few will end up matching the emotion and brilliance of Tenacious D.
Your favourite duo made an appearance on SiriusXM’s Octane and produced a stripped-back, vulnerable and stirring rendition.
From Kyle Gass’ soft plucks to Jack Black’s incredible croon, it’s quite special.
Have a watch and listen for yourself. You won’t regret it:
The D are making their way back to Europe for a string of shows next Summer.
They look like this:
06 – HAMBURG Sporthalle
07 – BERLIN Zitadelle
08 – NICKELSDORF Nova Rock Festival
