The Muppets drifted out of coolness when they were relegated to children’s entertainment in the ‘90s. They came back with a vengeance though through the magic of YouTube and they’re hilarious take on Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” (after the jump). On the eve of their new big screen release, is this OK Go rendition of The Muppet Show theme song. It’s muppet-tastic, filled with typical muppet hijinks, propelled into 2011 with “it” band OK Go. Make sure to catch the behind the scenes which is equally entertaining.

I wrote a piece wondering why OK Go's videos were so good but their songs seemed to be lacking. It generated a lot of great responses -- and then OK Go's Damian Kulash decided to give me a ring.

Four tracks. Two hits, one middling song, and a miss. OK Go keeps making great videos but musically they're still trying to live up to their excellent first album.
