Dave Grohl made an appearance on ABC’s The Muppets and engaged in an epic drum battle with Animal.

Dave Grohl V. Animal In Drum-Off

Foo Fighters frontman Grohl guest-starred on Tuesday night’s episode of The Muppets, “Going, Going Gonzo,” alongside actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. While Levitt sang Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me To The Moon” with Miss Piggy during the episode, Grohl filled in as the drummer for the house band for her late-night show – Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.

After the late-night show’s studio was emptied, Grohl and Animal sat down at their respective drum sets and battled it out.

“I’ve been waiting years for this, Animal,” said Grohl before Animal growled back, “Now we see who best!” and hit the skins for his first solo of the drum-off.

Hitting the cymbal, Grohl, who drummed for Nirvana and Queens of the Stone Age, asked, “Oh, what’s that, a bell? Time for school!” before taking off on his own solo.


In the end, with both out of breath after kicking over their drum sets, they each declared the other the winner.

Incidentally, Grohl appeared in the the 2001 Muppets movie as “Animool,” the drummer for the tribute band featured in the film.
