Kyle Gass – one half of veteran comedy rock duo Tenacious D – has penned a Covid-inspired cover of the Ramones' I Wanna Be Sedated.

The track – now entitled Vaccinated – uses the same melody and arrangement as the 1978 punk classic, but with a fresh set of lyrics pertaining to COVID-19 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,” Gass sings.

For the accompanying music video – which can be seen below – the guitarist managed to track down a host of famous faces, including Toto's Steve Lukather, his Tenacious D bandmate Jack Black, Evanescence's Amy Lee, Danko Jones, actor John C. Reilly and comedian Samantha Lee.
