TENACIOUS D’s Kyle Gass has gotten together with a bunch of friends, including EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee, TOTO’s Steve Lukather and Gass’s bandmate Jack Black, to appear in the video for “Vaccinated”. The video, a take-up on THE RAMONES classic “I Wanna Be Sedated”, also features appearances by Samantha Bee, John C. Reilly, Kathy Najimy, Danko Jones and BLACK STONE CHERRY’s Ben Wells.
“Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours from now/I’m getting vaccinated,” Gass croons in the song. “Waited so long that I wrote down this song/I’m getting vaccinated.”
Regarding his decision to turn “I Wanna Be Sedated” into an inoculation anthem with “Vaccinated”, Gass said: “Getting the world vaccinated is the difficult but necessary challenge of our times. That is why I wrote this important anthem for all of humankind. Please enjoy getting ‘Vaccinated’. You’re welcome.”
