Rock’s nicest bloke Dave Grohl is no stranger to Muppets, having gone the drum battle with the legendary Animal a couple of years back. Now, he’s teaming up with Elmo and Big Bird.

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the enduring children’s show that caused heaps of Aussie kids to say “zee” instead of “zed”, Sesame Street.

Putting that whinge aside, it has been a brilliant way of teaching literacy and numeracy to kids under the guise of silly puppet entertainment. It’s also featured many a great guest over the years, and Grohl is right up there with the best.

There’s no word on what song Grohl will perform with Big Bird and the incomprehensibly squeaky-voiced Elmo, but we’re pretty sure that it will rock.

Meanwhile, DRUMS! DRUMS!
