As One: Watch Miley Cyrus, Joan Jett, and Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace cover the Replacements

 

Last weekend, Miley Cyrus joined Joan Jett And The Blackhearts on stage in Dallas, and it set the tone for a busy and important week ahead. On Tuesday, Cyrus launched the Happy Hippie Foundation, a nonprofit organization that is devoted to helping homeless, LGBT, and other troubled youth, and is now spreading the word with a series of live collaborations.

As part raising of the organization’s profile, she’s unveiled the Backyard Sessions, a string of music videos featuring those collaborations, and one of the first just surfaced today: Watch Cyrus, Jett, and Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace cover the Replacements’ “Androgynous.”

Covering the ‘Mats song is an inspired choice for Grace, as the opening lyrics are: “Here comes Dick, he’s wearing a skirt/Here comes Jane, you know she’s sporting a chain/Same hair, revolution, same build, evolution/Tomorrow who’s gonna fuss.”

“The position I’m in, I feel like I’ve got a lot of power,” Cyrus told the Associated Press earlier in the week, via Popsugar. “But so many kids don’t feel that way. They’re under their parents’ rule. When you have all eyes on you, what are you saying? And that’s what I had to ask myself a lot. It’s like, I know you’re going to look at me more if my (breasts) are out, so look at me. And then I’m going to tell you about my foundation for an hour and totally hustle you.”
