After making its mark as an alt-rock anthem 20 years ago, Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" has been re-appropriated by everyone from Patti Smith to the folks behind Moulin Rouge. Later this fall, the song might get its most startling reworking when it's delivered by some of our Muppet pals in the new film, The Muppets.
Ultimate Classic Rock reports that the movie's soundtrack includes the Nirvana track performed by The Muppets Barbershop Quartet. Seeing as it's been reported that Dave Grohl has a cameo in the movie, just maybe the two are connected.
The film stars Jason Segel and Amy Adams, who attempt to help Kermit, Gonzo and the gang save their theater from evil oilman Tex Richman (played by Chris Cooper). The movie opens on November 23.
Rob Zombie has been slow-rolling details for his upcoming witch film 'The Lords of Salem', the latest of which says that his guitarist John 5 will compose and record the musical score.
Rob Zombie has always taken a family approach when making films. Not in the sense that he makes movies for families (quite the opposite really), but that he often works within the same circle of people — casting friends and actors he's previously worked with. So when it came time to recruit someone to score his upcoming witchcraft horror tale, he didn't have to look very far.
Zombie announced that his guitarist John 5 will handle the musical duties for the 2012 film. John has released several solo albums and honed his dark sound over the years working with acts like Marilyn Manson and Rob Halford.
