“Who better to deliver a tribute to the greatest rock opera of all times? Who? The D! That’s Who!!” Tenacious D said in a statement. “We’ve been working on this medley for 20 years. It’s finally ready to be unleashed. Crank it. It’s a humdinger. Enjoy.”
The video for the medley was directed by longtime Tenacious D friend and collaborator Liam Lynch, who helmed the duo’s 2006 film The Pick of Destiny.
