Jack Black's Infectious Video Game Song Features God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Yes, Mario

Must read

Jack Black has created yet another catchy song – and this time, it's a love letter to video games.

Following up on his song "Peaches" for The Super Mario Bros. Movie, his band Tenacious D released "Video Games" with an accompanying music video that sports more game references than you can count on two hands. You can watch the full video here.

It opens up with an animated version of Jack Black singing about how he doesn't play video games (we all know that's not true) with bandmate Kyle Gass playing guitar. As the video goes on, Black begins to name a bunch of video games he's played… while Gass gets killed by various video game creatures and characters.

Throughout the song, he references God of War, Fallout 4, Sonic the Hedgehog, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Legend of Zelda, Street Fighter, Minecraft, Tomb Raider, Team Fortress 2, Mega Man, and Super Mario Bros.

It's only Black's latest mix of music and games. Last month, "Peaches" had climbed to the Billboard Hot 100 list. It was listed at No. 83, making it the first song in his solo career to make it on the list. Before that, the last time he was featured on the Billboard Hot 100 list was in 2006 when Tenacious D made the "The Pick of Destiny."
