Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl Vs. Animal the Muppet: the Great Drum-off

Yes, this is happening.

There have been utterly epic battles of the bands in contemporary history, but none will hold a candle to the drum-off that is to come: Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and The Muppets' most talented musician, Animal, are coming to fisticuffs.

ABC's The Muppets reboot is going rogue for its next episode, where legendary musician Grohl will make a cameo during Miss Piggy's nightly talk show, Up Late with Miss Piggy. The episode, which will air December 1, will reportedly feature a special scene during which he and Animal will publicly determine, once and for all, who is the true Monster of Rock.

But that's not the only guest appearance Tuesday's "Going, Going, Gonzo" episode will welcome. According to Variety, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, in all of his tight rope-walking splendor, will also be along for the ride. The Walk star will perform a duet with Miss Piggy herself, following up with a Muppet-laden poker night, which we're inclined to assume will end very differently than that of Sin City's.

Grohl returns to The Muppets after a 2011 cameo in The Muppets movie. We're sure it's a friendly rivalry between the two.

Or, you know, about as friendly as this guy can get.
