Tenacious D have returned with a new song called ‘Video Games’. Produced by John Spiker, the band’s first new song in five years is about how Jack Black doesn’t play video games anymore, then goes on to list titles like God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Fallout 4. It comes with an animated video created by OneyPlays, and you can check it out below.
“It’s about growing up and leaving childish things behind…” the band said of the song in a statement. “But then realizing that video games are more than just mindless toys….in fact they can be a true expression of huge ideas that belong in the pantheon of great works of art! It’s about time someone defended the honor and integrity of this bold new horizon. Leave it to the greatest band in the world…Tenacious D!!!”
Tenacious D’s last album, Post-Apocalypto, arrived in 2018.
