Late Night Pick of the Night: Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem

Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem, the band of Muppets and the Muppets band, will be on Jimmy Kimmel tonight on ABC at 12:05 AM. Dr. Teeth & the band, of course, came out of the late 60's - early 70's SF scene and played at Woodstock, Altamont, & Monterey Pop and influenced dozens of puppet bands in the US and UK. Their highest profile gig was as the house band for "The Muppet Show" which worked out nicely because they are, in fact, Muppets. The band is still going strong after all these years, surviving the breakup of the relationship between Janice and Floyd in the late 70's and Animal's substance abuse and anger management issues.

Here they are peforming in the Muppets version of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" which has over 25 MILLION hits on YouTube:
