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.  

To accentuate the point, the band assembled an amazing group of pals all doing the Time Warp again, including Senator Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Susan Sarandon, Sarah Silverman, John Waters, Jamie Lee Curtis, Karen O, Reggie Watts, Ezra Miller, Ilana Glazer, Phoebe Bridgers, John Heilemann, George Takei, Eric Andre, King Princess, Michael Peña, and Peaches.
