Background [ edit ]
The song, as featured in the movie, is an exploration of classical guitar music in aid of proving
Kyle Gass's musical prowess to Jack Black. In it, Gass plays sections from Bach's (from Bourrée in E minor Suite in E minor, BWV 996), by Für Elise Beethoven and by Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (Serenade in G Major, K. 525: I. Allegro) Mozart. Jack sings along harmoniously to Gass' guitar playing, greatly impressing a passing pizza delivery boy, Lee.
Tenacious D previously used the theme from the Bach
Bourrée in their song "Rock Your Socks".
