The new Muppets movie – aptly titled The Muppets – opens in a few weeks. If you can’t wait to get your next fix of Kermit and the gang, though, you can get a preview now. A cover preview, that is. It’s the Muppets Barbershop Quartet performing Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and it’s everything you hoped and dreamed it would be.

The Muppets Barbershop Quartet consists of Sam the Eagle, Rowlf the Dog, Link Hogthrob, and, of course, Beaker. Sadly, this is the only number they do in the movie, but from that still above, it looks like it’ll be a good one. Try to imagine the visuals as you stream the song below. Meep meep! (via Stereogum)
