In the red corner, we have the mad-ass drum monkey from The Electric Mayhem.
In the Foo corner, we have David Eric Grohl, former Nirvana beatsmith and multi-instrumental rocklord.
Theirs is a duel decades in the making, and it finally came to fruition on this week’s episode of The Muppets.
After previously announcing plans to go head-to-head in the ultimate battle for percussive prestige, the two hairy AF skin thrashers duked it out in the drum-derdome in the nail-biting climax of the show – going beat for beat, fill for fill and windmill for windmill as the closing credits rolled.
“Oh what’s that? A bell?” Grohl quizzes sarcastically after tapping his ryde. “Time for school!”
Things get even hairier as the mangy rivals continue to pummel the living Kermit out of their kits until drums – and hearts – are left smashed.
Altogether, it makes the great Will Ferrell V Chad Smith drum-off of 2014 look like a tea party at Miss Piggy’s house.
But who emerges victorious in this epic drum battle for the ages? Watch below to find out.
