We look at our favorite times when classic rockers have appeared with the Muppets.
We look at our favorite interpretations of classic rock songs by the Muppets.
Ever since Bette Midler sang 'One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)' to Johnny Carson' in 1992, it's become a tradition for a concluding late-night television show to be sent off with a musical bang. Last night (Feb. 7), Jimmy Fallon said goodbye to 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' in his own way, singing the Band's 'The Weight' with some help from the Muppets.
Courtney Love, who seems to lack that invisible barrier most us have between what we think and what we say, has gone on record with another gem: she claims Disney and the Muppets "raped" Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's memory by featuring 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' in last year's movie, 'The Muppets.'
The Muppets' fruitful association with classic rock continues. In this viral video, the oft put-upon but always gentlemanly lab assistant know Beaker offers his acoustic and meep–filled rendition of 'Dust in the Wind' by Kansas to an online audience. He certainly puts his own unique stamp on the tune.
Electric Mayhem, the psychedelic funk rock group helmed by the fearless leader Dr. Teeth, have to be one of your favorite classic rock bands. Ever. Look at the lineup! You've got the volatile Animal smashing away on the skins; that groovy chic Janice on guitar; Zoot on sax; and Floyd Pepper thwapping the bass. How can you not love a band comprised of The Muppets? Electric Mayhem are once against thrust into the spotlight as 'The Muppets' movie is about to land in multiplexes this holiday season.
The latest 'Muppets' movie is out Nov. 23 and the more we learn about the soundtrack, the more we like, especially the fact that Kermit and friends are going to cover Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit!'
'Flight of the Conchords' member Bret McKenzie wrote four original songs, which will also no doubt be awesome, especially when sung by film stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams and Chris Cooper.
