For decades The Electric Mayhem has been making music and making people happy with their performances on The Muppets Show, in Muppets movies, and in other places through the years. This includes a live performance in Outside Lands in 2016 and the Hollywood Bowl in 2017 and O2 in 2018. Now the band is appearing on Disney+ in its own series, The Muppets Mayhem. With the arrival of this series that focuses on the band making its first album ever, the band also made an actual album. It also turns out that people really like this album (and series)!
Billboard has revealed that the soundtrack for The Muppets Mayhem has entered its charts for Kids Album in the No. 13 spot. This means that the first time The Electric Mayhem released an album they became Billboard-charting artists. The soundtrack includes 17 songs on it that are performed by The Electric Mayhem. There are also five scores that are by Mick Giacchino. The list of songs include a compilation of titles that are original to the band and series along with covers of some other well-known bands.
