MUPPETS: THE GREEN ALBUM - ALKALINE TRIO, OK GO, WEEZER & MORE DO MUPPETS SONGS
To celebrate the release of the first theatrical Muppets film for 12 years, Kermit and Walt Disney have put together a pretty hip, star-studded collection of guaranteed-to-brighten-your-day prozac tunes - for a 56 year old frog.
Contributing artists include; Alkaline Trio, Weezer, Hayley Williams, Brandon Saller (Atreyu), OK Go, My Morning Jacket and Amy Lee.
Weezer sound as cheery as ever but it's pretty weird to hear a kid's version of Alkaline Trio, "Hey, that song, it's starting to sound better Danny..." Puke!
The Muppets, written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, is due out November 23. The film features cameos by Dave Grohl, Jack Black, Mila Kunis, Danny Trejo, Ben Stiller, Zach Galifianakis, Katy Perry and Modern Family's Rico Rodriguez, Sarah Hyland and Eric Stonestreet (among others).
