Jonathan Coulton Is Taking Revenge on ‘Glee’ by Beating Them on the Charts
After the show Glee ripped off the arrangement and melody for Jonathan Coulton’s cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” and refused to credit or pay him in any way, Coulton has taken to the internet to release a cover of Glee‘s cover of his cover. Titled “Baby Got Back (In the Style of Glee)” and complete with a photo of him making the “L for loser” gesture used in Glee‘s marketing, Jonathan Coulton has released the song on iTunes, Google Play, and AmazonMP3. The single is tearing up the iTunes charts, currently at #95, higher than any song from Glee is right now. Coulton is donating all proceeds to The It Gets Better Project and The VH1 Save the Music Foundation and has challenged Glee to do the same thing for their songs too, which is totally not a thing that will ever happen.
