Tenacious D. Encourage Fans to “Rocky the Vote” With Star-Studded “Time Warp” Cover

  • Axl Rosenberg

Did you guys know there’s a presidential election one week from today? It almost completely escaped my attention. Was it on the news? Weird I haven’t heard people talking about it.

Thankfully, Tenacious D. have reminded fans to Rocky the vote (yuk yuk) with a cover of “The Time Warp,” the most famous song from The Rocky Horror Show and its subsequent movie adaptation, The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Says the duo:

“It’s astounding… time is fleeting… and the 2020 election is here. Time to ROCK-Y THE VOTE! And remember: it’s just a jump to the LEFT, and not a step to the right!”

And yes, they did also change the lyrics about jumping to the left and stepping to the right. It’s low-hanging fruit, yes, but if it gets even one more person to vote for Biden…

In addition to Tenacious D.’s Jack Black and Kyle Gass, the 2020 “Time Warp” features a metric fuckton of celebrity cameos, including original Rocky Horror Picture Show star Susan Sarandon. Here’s the full list of participants in alphabetical order:

  • Eric Andre
  • Ezra Miller
  • George Takei
  • Ilana Glazer
  • Jamie Lee Curtis
  • John Heilemann
  • John Waters
  • Karen O.
  • King Princess
  • Mayor Pete Buttigieg
  • Michael Peña
  • Peaches
  • Phoebe Bridgers
  • Reggie Watts
  • Sarah Silverman
  • Senator Elizabeth Warren
  • Susan Sarandon

You can watch the video below. And if for some reason you still don’t have a plan in place for voting — be it early voting (which is already underway!), a mail-in ballot (QUICK, there’s no time to lose!), or braving the polls on the day — go here to get all the information you need. I know people say “This is the most important election in our lifetimes” every four years, but seriously… this is the most important election in our lifetimes. If ever there was a time to do your civic duty, this is it.
