Postmodern Jukebox Puts Throwback Twist on New Songs

Pin It

This is so weird, but we can't stop watching these videos. Scott Bradlee and the Postmodern Jukebox is a band that's taking YouTube by storm with their old version of new songs.

Yep, you read that right. They take current hits like "Blurred Lines," "Call Me Maybe" and "We Can't Stop" and then they sing them with a throwback twist. If you watch the video above, you'll see why the latter is by far their most popular at the moment with over 8 million views already.

They've actually taken on tons of popular songs and while the old-fashioned theme they mix in there makes it kind of a mind-bender to watch, it's still super cool. Think of it like watching a 1950s film with a modern-day soundtrack.

They also have some country versions of songs like "Timber" and "Die Young" (Ke$ha seems to be their favorite country candidate), but those aren't nearly as fun as the throwbacks.

Hey, we don't know if you guys are taking requests, but since the other Miley Cyrus song you did was so popular, we'd love to see your take on "Wrecking Ball."

Did they even have wrecking balls back then? On a completely unrelated note, how weird would it have been if Miley Cyrus lived in the 1950s? Now that would be a really interesting parody to see. Your move, Funny or Die.
