At the beginning of the video when Tenacious D are preparing the airplane, a quirky electronic version of the Foo Fighters song "Everlong
" is playing. Grohl liked the idea of Muzak playing, but he needed a more flouncy instrumental for comic effect. He turned to the electronic duo The Moog Cookbook, who created the version of "Big Me
" that plays when Grohl gets on the elevator in the "Monkey Wrench
"When they did the video for 'Learn to Fly,' again they asked for a similar funny cover of the song 'Everlong' for the Tenacious D opening scene, Brian Kehew
of The Moog Cookbook told us. "We did a full-length version but did not keep a copy. For some reason, they lost their version too, so no one seems to have the full version anymore... too bad!"
