Jonathan Coulton Shows ‘Glee’ Creators What Class Is By Re-Releasing His 2005 ‘Baby Got Back’ Cover For Charity—And Beats ‘Glee’ In The Charts!

Indie singer-songwriter Jonathan Coulton posted an update on this whole BackGate issue. He has re-released his 2005 cover of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s classic Baby Got Back hit as Baby Got Back (In the Style of Glee) for charity through the month of February. It soon surpassed Glee’s ripoff version (as well as the other debuting Glee songs from the Sadie Hawkins episode) in iTunes’ charts. Classy indeed.
