"Dio" as written by Thomas Jacob Black and Kyle Richard Gass....
Dio has rocked for a long, long time,
Now it's time for him to pass the torch.
He has songs of wildebeests and angels,
He has soared on the wings of a demon.

It's time to pass the torch,
You're too old to rock, no more rockin' for you.
We're takin' you to a home,
But we will sing a song about you.
And we will make sure that you're very well taken care of.
You'll tell us secrets that you've learned. Raow!

Your sauce will mix with ours,
And we'll make a good goulash baby.
Dio, time to go!
You must give your cape and scepter to me.
And a smaller one for KG.
Go! Go! Dio! Dio! Oh!

    General CommentWho is Dio???!!! You're kidding right? Ronnie James Dio. Took Ozzy's place as lead singer for Black Sabbath. About 4'2". Always sings about Merlins, goblets, spells/potions, evil wizards and other "metal" things. He's been one of the coolest running jokes with people who are in the "cool-circle". Listen and learn my young whippersnapper. Typically a group of us cool folk would take turns making up Dio-type lyrics such as "His hunger bleeds as the Wizard begs. The toadstools grow right beneath his legs. He is the Sorcerer of Blood...Yeah the Sorcerer of Blood...Look out!" That was completely improvised as I typed by the way which is an admission of playing way too many hours of "The Dio Game". Have fun with it.

    General CommentRonnie James Dio is the elder statesman of heavy metal, sometimes referred to as "the voice of metal". He was in several very obscure bands in the 60s, but is most well known for his work with Rainbow (1974-79), Black Sabbath (1979-82, 1991-93) and his own band, Dio (1982-91, 1993-). The song's based around the fact he's in his 60s and still releasing albums and touring (Supposedly being past it). Excellent fantasy-style lyricist.

    General CommentI think it's hilarious that RJD liked the song and even featured Jack & KG in a music video! Dio is awesome, and so is Tenacious D! Oh and Dreamer, one of those 60's bands was named Elf...just thought you'd like to know.

    General CommentDio's not the voice of metal. He effin' rocks harder then Ozzy in my humble opinion, but he's definitely not the voice. Seriously, Holy Diver is one of the greatest songs ever.

    If you all are into Dio, you should try and look up the song "We're Stars" by Dio, Halford (of Judas Priest), Geoff Tate (of Queensryche) and Dokken. It's effin' awesome!
