Over the Top is a band that played "ZZ Blues" on Sesame Street in season 18 (1987). The band's shaggy-bearded, sunglassed appearance and inclination towards blues rock parody that of ZZ Top.

The lead singer and guitarist, a Green Anything Muppet, is performed by Jerry Nelson. The other musicians, both Lavender AMs, are a bass player (Kevin Clash)[1] and a drummer (David Rudman).[2]
