The Muppets will cover Nirvanas 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' as part of the soundtrack for their new movie.

The Muppets Barbershop Quartet will provide their own take on the seminal grunge anthem - which was originally released as a single in 1991 - for their big-screen flick The Muppets, which is set to come out in the UK next February. The soundtrack will also include a cover of Cee Lo Green's Number One hit 'Forget You'.

It was previously reported that former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl had landed a cameo in the film, with the Foo Fighters frontman set to stand in for regular Muppets drummer Animal while he attends anger management as part of the movie's plot.

The new film, which was written by and stars How I Met Your Mother actor Jason Segel, will also feature cameos from Jack Black, Ricky Gervais and Lady Gaga.

This year marked the 20th anniversary of the release of Nirvana's 1991 LP 'Nevermind'. The album has sold over 30 million copies in the decades since its release, and a reissued and repackaged version of the record entered the UK album chart at Number Five earlier this month (October 2).
