Watch Dave Grohl + Animal Face Off in an Epic Drum Battle on ‘The Muppets’
As we previously learned, Dave Grohl will face off with Animal in an epic drum-off on tonight’s (Dec. 1) episode of The Muppets. Although the episode has yet to air, the clip of the drum battle has already surfaced online.
The rivalry between the two drummers originated with the Foo Fighters leader’s appearance in the 2011 movie The Muppets. In that role, Grohl served as the drummer for a Muppets cover band. Now, on the latest episode of the recently resurrected TV series, Grohl and Animal settled who’s the superior drummer once and for all -- well kind of. Watch the drum-off unfold in the clip up above.
Grohl also plays drums for Miss Piggy’s band the Electric Mayhem on tonight’s episode. Catch it in full on ABC at 9PM EST.
Foo Fighters just released the brand-new Saint Cecilia EP for free. The five-track effort landed on Nov. 23 as a tribute to those lost in the attacks in Paris earlier that month. “There is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world,” Grohl said in a statement. “To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song.”
The Saint Cecilia EP follows the band’s 2014 full-length Sonic Highways.
