OK Go Covers Muppets Theme Song
08.23.11 by Chris
The Beatles had the White album. Jay-Z had his Black album. Well, now the Muppets have the Green Album. In anticipation of the upcoming Muppets movie, Disney has released an album of classic Muppett songs covered by some of today's trendiest bands, including The Fray, My Morning Jacket, Matt Nathanson, and OK Go.
The video for OK Go's cover of the Muppet Show Theme Song has just been released — take OK Go, with its reputation for producing eye-popping and clever videos, add in the nostalgia of the Muppets, and you get a pretty entertaining video. The band even references some of its earlier music videos.
To hear the rest of the album's lineup, check out NPR's First Listen.
So far, The Muppets is drawing a lot of buzz with its parody trailers and all-star cast, which includes Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, and cameos by Jack Black, Zach Galifianakis, Ricky Gervais, Danny Trejo, Emily Blunt, and Ed Helms.
