Brooklyn Vegan is covering a Glee story: the apocalypse is now.

uptownisdeadnow:

Fox teen musical show Glee will resume their fourth season on Thursday (1/24) and if you somehow end up watching, you’ll notice that they’ll be singing a cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” However, NYC geek rock fave Jonathan Coulton just tweeted that they ripped of his cover of the song without contacting him. You can stream Jonathan’s version and Glee’s version below… the similarities are pretty undeniable.

Glee’s cover

Probably the only time you’ll see Brooklyn Vegan and Glee in the same headline…

    Not cool. Jonathan’s version has been around forever and he deserves credit.

    Glee has a tendency of ripping people off. I really hope Jonathan sues the shit out of Ryan Murphy and his people.

    They ripped off the cover of “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” by Greg Laswell, too.
