Postmodern Jukebox‘s latest vintage cover unravels new layers to Weezer’s ’90s epic “Say it Ain’t So,” which is about lead singer River Cuomo’s troubled family history of alcohol abuse. While the original is loaded with loud guitars and post-grunge catharsis, Postmodern Jukebox guest singer Dani Armstrong opts for a Jessica Rabbit look to complement the revivalist band’s slow tempo.

It brings touching new layers to the song.

Since forming in 2011, the retro band has scored a massive YouTube following for its 20s-tinged covers, with nearly 3 million subscribers. Its cover of “All About That Bass” has been viewed more than 27 million times.
