Muppets Cover Nirvana’s “Teen Spirit”

 

Prepare to be
rick-rolled…

While
we can’t exactly say that we are anxiously awaiting Disney’s The Muppets arrival in theaters Nov. 23 –
the notion of otherwise enjoyable chanteuses like Feist and Joanna Newsom contributing
to the soundtrack
hasn’t been a source of thrills, cheap or otherwise, either –
it’s hard not to be intrigued by the news that the movie will feature a cover
of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

 

The
track hit the internet yesterday, with entertainment blogs like Stereogum and
Idolator posting the YouTube-sourced audio clip. Sadly, before too many could
get to hear the tune it had received a takedown order and it now displays a “this
video has been removed by the user” notice.

 

Presumably
all of you reading this will now be flocking to the theaters in a couple of
weeks to get your Nirvana fix, but in the meantime we found a semi-fun clip on
YouTube that some enterprising soul posted awhile ago. It’s not the new version
of the song, but rather Nirvana’s original music with some Muppets “concert
action” clips flown in. As a bonus, you can also check out the classic Rick Astley
varshon….
