(CNN)Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem have been together for more than 40 years, but they just played their first music festival.

The Muppets' house band were one of the acts Sunday at the Outside Lands festival in San Francisco, where they opened for Third Eye Blind, Chance the Rapper and Lionel Richie.
    Their 25-minute set included their signature song, "Can You Picture That?" plus covers of Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, "San Francisco" by The Mowgli's, "Ophelia" by The Band and the Beatles' "With A Little Help From My Friends," done Joe Cocker style.
    Suffice it to say folks went wild over the bands first "live" performance.
