(Gibson) In advance of the fall release of the new Muppets movie (simply titled The Muppets), Disney is releasing an album of Muppets songs, covered by some big names in the rock world.
Among the participants on The Green Album: Weezer, My Morning Jacket, Evanescence's Amy Lee, OK Go, The Fray, Alkaline Trio and Andrew Bird.
Weezer gets the supreme honor of including their version of "Rainbow Connection," a track that also features Paramore's Hayley Williams. It's not the first Muppet-Weezer crossover. Kermit and Co. appeared in the pop rock band's 2002 video for "Keep Fishin'." more on this story
