Watch Miley Cyrus, Laura Jane Grace, and Joan Jett Cover The Replacements’ “Androgynous”

The next song in Cyrus' Happy Hippie Foundation Backyard Session.

Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace has an advice column here at Noisey called “Mandatory Happiness.” Not often, but occasionally, she misses deadlines on it because she’s on the road being an international rockstar, spreading her message to the masses and what not, so we give her a pass on it. A few weeks ago, we dropped her an email to see if she was going to meet her deadline that week. No, she said, she was busy recording a song with Miley Cyrus. Oh OK, Laura, no problem, that makes sen—wait, what the fuck are you talking about? Apparently, Laura was invited to perform as part of Miley’s Happy Hippie Presents: Backyard Session series, a project aiming to help fight for homeless LGBT youth. We kinda didn’t believe it until we saw this pop up on Instagram a while back.


We are longtime supporters of Miley's punk cred, so naturally we've been eagerly awaiting this collaboration. And now it’s finally here. Miley, Laura, and Joan Jett covering The Replacements’ “Androgynous,” off of 1984’s Let It Be. A song decades ahead of its time. Watch it below.

LGBT issues being publicly embraced and supported by our nation's top pop stars: THE FUTURE IS NOW. To quote Laura on this one, “Burn, gender, burn.”
