Watch Dave Grohl’s Drum Battle With Animal on ‘The Muppets’
One thing is for certain — when you get Dave Grohl and Animal together, the hair, the fur and the limbs will fly. That’s what fans will get Tuesday night during the airing of ABC’s The Muppets when the highly anticipated drum-off between the Nirvana stickman / Foo Fighters frontman and Electric Mayhem’s skins beater square off.
Though The Muppets episode won’t air tonight until 8PM ET/PT on ABC, the clip that runs over the show’s closing credits has found its way online from a Canadian broadcast. And it’s clear that have been simmering tensions over the years.
“I’ve been waiting years for this, Animal,” Grohl seethes. “Now we see who best,” counters Animal, who kicks things off by pounding away on his kit. An unimpressed Grohl looks on, dinging his cymbal once Animal stops and taunting, “Oh, what’s that? A bell? Time for school.”
Who is the winner in this battle? Clearly not either of their drum kits which are no longer intact by the time they finish. Watch the humorous battle in the video clip below.
It should be noted that this isn’t Grohl’s first time crossing paths with the Muppets. He appeared as the drummer Animool in the Electric Mayhem knockoff group The Moopets in 2011’s Jason Segel-starring Muppets movie. To see how the whole drum battle comes to be, check out The Muppets tonight at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
