Rocking the bookends

While most of The Pick of Destiny feels like I need to see the movie to appreciate it, the songs that start and end the soundtrack are pretty amazing.

Opener "Kickapoo" pulls you in from the opening refrain of "A long ass f*ckin' time ago, in a town called Kickapoo..." and never lets go. Meatloaf guests, playing the father role and the music shifts quickly to accomodate his musical-style heft. Then JB pleads for help from Ronnie James Dio, who lays out what JaBles needs to do to go forth and ROCK.

Here's the first six minutes of The Pick of Destiny, featuring "Kickapoo" with Meatloaf and Dio cameos in place:

Meanwhile "The Metal" riffs (and I do mean riffs) off the resiliency of Metal:
You can't kill the metal
The metal will live on
Punk rock tried to kill the metal
But they failed as they were smited to the ground
New wave tried to kill the metal
But they failed as they were stricken down to the ground
Grunge tried to kill the metal
Hahahahaha they failed as they were thrown to the ground
Well played JaBles and KaGe, well played...
