Tenacious D have enlisted the help of a few famous friends to deliver a vaccine-themed take on Ramones punk classic ‘I Want To Be Sedated’, dubbed ‘Vaccinated.’
Kyle Gass reworked The Ramones cut to promote getting a coronavirus vaccination. “Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours from now/ I’m getting vaccinated/ Waited so long that I wrote down this song/ I’m getting vaccinated,” he sings.
Gass phoned in the ranks of Tenacious D bandmate, who looks absolutely spectacular in a doctor’s scrub get out, Evanescence singer Amy Lee, Toto’s Steve Lukather, Danko Jones and actors John C. Reilly and Kathy Najimy. It’s as ridiculous and chaotic as it sounds. Check it out below.

Back in April, it was revealed that Saturday Night Live alumni Pete Davidson has been tapped to play Joey Ramone, in the forthcoming Netflix biopic, I Slept With Joey Ramone.
Davidson will star and executive produce the film, based on the memoir of the same name by Ramone’s brother, Mickey Leigh, who will also act as executive producer. Jason Orley (Big Time Adolescence) will direct.
Leigh’s I Slept With Joey Ramone — written with Legs McNeil — was released back in 2010, a decade after the frontman’s death in 2001 from lymphoma in cancer at the age of 49.
In other news, Jack Black co-star Kevin Clark, who played drummer Freddy ‘Spazzy McGee’ Jones in Richard Linklater’s 2003 comedy School of Rock passed way earlier this month after he was involved in a cycling accident.
