The latest Fraggle Rock revival, Back to the Rock, premiered on Apple TV+ yesterday, and to celebrate the occasion Foo Fighters revealed that they wrote a song for its soundtrack. Aptly titled “Fraggle Rock Rock,” the track sees Dave Grohl pay homage to the show’s original theme song while also penning some pretty wacky lyrics of his own.
“We’re gonna rock our way to freedom/Gonna run right back and see ’em/ Gonna flip, flop, skippity hop/Back to Fraggle Rock,” he sings in the chorus.
Jim Henson’s beloved series first aired in the mid-80s. This reboot follows the success of the Zoom-shot Fraggle Rock: Rock On! shorts that aired on Apple TV+ in 2020.
“Jim Henson’s fun-loving, musical Fraggles are back!” a Back to the Rock show synopsis says. “Join Gobo, Red, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and new Fraggle friends on hilarious, epic adventures about the magic that happens when we celebrate and care for our interconnected world.”
The Foos aren’t the only musical guests to appear on Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock — Patti LaBelle also contributed a song called “Shine On Us Now.” Cynthia Erivo, Ed Helms, Kenan Thompson, and Daveed Diggs will also be featured in the show.
