Did you know the Muppets had this much attitude?
We all know the Video Music Awards often fail to recognize top-notch achievements in rap and hip hop, but one group of musical legends in particular deserves a long-overdue honorable mention: the Muppets.
The Muppets may not do much of their own rhyming, but these Internet mashups and covers prove that they just might be the new kings of hip-hop videos—VMAs be damned.
From Miss Piggy serving the fiercest combination of attitude and glam with Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” to Animal’s boisterous drumming as he covers Kool and the Gang’s “Jungle Boogie,” one thing’s for sure—these Muppets know how to get down.
Here are some award-worthy Muppet-ized performances.
1) The Beastie Boys’ “So What’cha Want”
2) Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend”
3) Shock G’s “The Humpty Dance”
4) Ol Dirty Bastard’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya”
5) Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money”
6) Kool and the Gang’s “Jungle Boogie”
7) NWA’s “Express Yourself”
