It's astounding...time is fleeting...and the 2020 election is nearly here. Earlier in this unthinkable year, everyone's favorite rock band Tenacious D -- comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass -- announced they would be touring throughout the fall in Swing States across the country to help encourage a massive voter turnout in this year's election. Called "The Purple Nurple Tour - Twisting Hard to the LEFT," in honor of the band's own inclinations towards progressive politics and a Blue agenda, the run was sadly cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic in the U.S. Still -- JB and KG knew that with great rock comes great responsibility, and were determined to find a way to help get the vote out this fall. What they landed on is better than anyone could have dreamed: a raucous, pitch-perfect cover of the Halloween classic "Time Warp" from the legendary camp hit Rocky Horror Picture Show. Except, for The D, there's a particular message in putting their hands on their hips -- the importance of jumping to the left, and NOT stepping to the right, when it comes to rocking the vote on November 3rd.
