Weezer v. Kermit the Frog

It didn't surprise me at all to see Weezer contributing a song to the upcoming Muppets movie soundtrack--it is called "The Green Album," after all.

I didn't, however, expect to see Alkaline Trio on the track list. Alas, the band who is usually inspired by death (and sometimes thinks I'm their stripper), offers up "Movin' Right Along." I was a little less surprised when I realized bassist Dan Andriano was doing the singing. He's always been a softy. He also has a new solo record out. It's pretty good. You can hear a couple of the songs on his Facebook page.

NPR is streaming the Green Album here.

They should have used the Gimmee Gimmee's Rainbow Connection and saved Weezer for Our World. The ALK3 song was the most underwhelming of the bands I like. I would liked to see ALK3 do a pirate song from MTI. OK Go worked for me, though. So did Andrew Bird. Now I want to see some music videos.
