Crocodile Rock & Dr. Teeth

Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem are the house band on The Muppet Show.
They mostly stick to rock music, but they're capable of playing other styles, including jazz and (unwillingly) classical.
Although Dr. Teeth is the leader, he is not the only one to provide lead vocals.
Floyd Pepper is often a lead singer on songs, and Janice is lead singer on a handful of songs.

This next song is originally from Buck Owens and was a No. 1 hit in the country charts of the USA in 1964. One year later, 1965, the Beatles covered this song - and they did it very well. There also exists a version of Ringo Starr and Buck Owens together, recorded in the seventies.
