It's Rock God vs. Thunder God!
On Saturday, School of Rock star Jack Black -- who's also one half of the band Tenacious D -- called out Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, by way of Thor: Ragnarok director Taiki Waititi's Twitter. The playful beef stems from the the use of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" in the movie. Black sang the classic rock song in School of Rock, and joked that the filmmakers stole the idea for the Marvel film.
"You totally poached our jam," Black says in the video on Waititi's page.
Black then issued a musical throwdown. "This is a challenge. I'm challenging you to a battle. A battle of the jams!" he declares in the video.
Whatever a "battle of the jams" is, he's on board though. "My place or yours, baby, I'm in," he offered.
But Black later upped the stakes of the "battle," recruiting Hemsworth's Thor: Ragnarok co-star Cate Blanchett for an "Immigrant Song" sing-a-long.
The star shared a video on Instagram from the set of his new movie with Blanchett, The House With A Clock In Its Walls, leading the cast and crew (including director Eli Roth) in a dinner party battle/jam session.
