It’s time to play the music, Dave Grohl. It’s time to light the lights.

In the latest episode of ABC’s The Muppets, airing Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET, the Foo Fighters frontman returned to his old perch behind the drums and battled it out against rock n’ roll puppet Animal. Grohl’s performance recalled his stints as grunge-rock drummer for Nirvana and Queens of the Stone Age in the 90s and early 2000s.

“I’ve been waiting years for this, Animal,” he said before the drum-off.

The episode also features Joseph Gordon-Levitt singing Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon” with Miss Piggy.
