The Muppets Beastie Boy cover is a playful recreation of the critically acclaimed group's 'What'cha Want?' track. Flawlessly integrating Swedish Chef, Animal and Beaker in place of Michael 'Mike D' Diamond, Adam 'MCA' Yauch and Adam 'Ad-Rock' Horovitz, the three puppets lip-sync in front of a sparkling clover backdrop while wearing green berets.

A fun tribute to the celebrated music group, the Muppets Beastie Boy cover ends with a simple hash tag, 'RIP MCA.' Although he passed away on May 4 in 2012, he would have celebrated his birthday on August 5, so perhaps the Muppets Beastie Boy cover is more timely than people would have originally thought. Of course, Mashable writes, "The Internet is a land of endless creativity, so a collision of Muppets and Beastie Boys was inevitable."
