TENACIOUS D "The Last In Line," 2015

Posted on May 2, 2016

May 16 marks the sixth anniversary of legendary Dio/Rainbow/Black Sabbath singer Ronnie James Dio's death due to stomach cancer in 2010. In 2015, a tribute album called This Is Your Life, featuring Metallica, Rob Halford, Motorhead and more, was created to support the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund. One song from that album, Tenacious D's version of "The Last In Line" ended up winning the Best Metal Performance at the 2015 Grammy Awards. All proceeds from the song's sale go towards cancer prevention research. — Aaron Brophy.
