The Backstreet Boys went back to school—and old-school—with their latest rendition of a classic hit.

Donning all-white suits similar to what they wore on the cover of their third album Millennium, they joined Jimmy Fallon and the Roots in the classroom for a performance of “I Want It That Way” with classroom instruments. It’s the same song you’ll always know by heart, but it still has a trick or two up its sleeve.

The original will always be the standard, but we’ll take it this way, too.
