Muppets Cover Nirvana on New Movie Soundtrack [VIDEO]
You are about to witness the greatest music video on Earth! With the release of the new Muppets film set for next month, we are treated to a brand new soundtrack which includes some rather big and surprising names – including Nirvana.
Just in case you didn’t have enough reason to love the Muppets, they went ahead and gave you one more. A new movie featuring the beloved puppets is slated for a November 23rd release. In addition to the felt featured-cast, some big-name actors have jumped at the chance to costar in the latest Muppet movie – Jason Segal, Amy Adams, Neil Patrick Harris, Mila Kunis, Ricky Gervais, Billy Crystal, and Danny Trejo (perhaps the greatest B-movie actor next to Bruce Campbell of all time).
And if THAT weren’t enough to get you to pee your pants with excitment, then take a gander at the soundtrack that will be out two days prior to the film opening! Songs from Feist, Joanna Newsom, Bret McKenzie, Mickey Rooney (who happens to be 91), and NIRVANA! Yes, Animal and Janice will be rocking out hard-core as Gonzo gets his head-bangin’ on in their cover of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
While there’s no official video of the Muppet version yet, some mad genius did manage to put together a montage of what you can expect the outcome would be if the muppets ever took the stage with dearly departed Kurt. Check it out below.
As for Kermit and Miss Piggy, we’ll just have to wait and see what hijinx await for them in The Muppets 2011. Enjoy.
