Dave Grohl will be a guest on the 50th anniversary season of Sesame Street, which will see him perform a song with Elmo and Big Bird.

The Foo Fighters frontman previously appeared in 2015’s The Muppets movie, which saw him take part in a drum battle with Animal.

Sesame Street‘s new season, which will premiere on HBO, will reportedly show some of the Muppets traveling across the United States, visiting kids in their own neighborhoods.

Last weekend, Grohl performed Nirvana’s ‘In Bloom’ for the second time since Kurt Cobain’s death. He took to the stage to drum along to the seminal single from ‘Nevermind’ with Trombone Shorty at Los Angeles’ Voodoo Threauxdown Festival.

“For years I couldn’t even listen to any music, let alone a Nirvana song,” said Grohl earlier this year of his connection to his former band. “When Kurt died, every time the radio came on, it broke my heart. I don’t put Nirvana records on, no. Although they are always on somewhere. I get in the car, they’re on. I go into a shop, they’re on. For me, it’s so personal.

“I remember everything about those records; I remember the shorts I was wearing when we recorded them or that it snowed that day. Still, I go back and find new meanings to Kurt’s lyrics.”
He continued: “Not to seem revisionist, but there are times when it hits me. You go, ‘Wow, I didn’t realise he was feeling that way at the time’.

“Nirvana, for me, was a personal revolution, I was 21. You remember being 21? You think you know it all. But you don’t. I thought I knew everything. And being in Nirvana showed me how little I really knew.

Grohl added: “They were some of the greatest highs of my life, but also, of course, one of the biggest lows.”
