The Muppets' Jesus Christ Superstar Is A Real Album That Someone Made

Here's a question we never thought to ask: how would Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock opera about the life of Jesus play with the Muppets? Now we know, thanks to the Muppet Christ Superstar album, with Kermit as Jesus, Gonzo as Judas, Miss Piggy as Mary Magdalene, and a chorus of clucking proto-Christian chickens.

Christo Graham recorded the unauthorized Muppet Christ Superstar, with the singers doing their best imitations of the Muppets. As weird as the concept is, it's actually pretty fantastic in places, especially with the Electric Mayhem as Jesus' followers—and Beaker meeping his way through "Simon Zealotes." In other places, though, the voices are a bit off, particularly in the more emotional moments. Give it a listen.
