THIS JUST IN: GLEE IS SHIT, RIPS OFF JONATHAN COULTON

image

Glee recently covered Baby Got Back (AKA the “I like big butts and I cannot lie” song), a song that famous geek songwriter Jonathan Coulton did an acoustic guitar cover of many years back, and instead of coming up with their own arrangement they just straight up wholesale copied Coulton’s version of the song (Coulton himself is saying that they might even have used some of his audio)

For comparison, here is a stereo track with Jonathan Coulton’s cover in one ear and the Glee version in the other

EDIT: Some people have expressed doubt that this is actually a Glee track, since the episode hasn’t aired yet and whatnot. The answer to that is, it most definitely is a Glee track because it’s for sale on the Swedish iTunes store right now, attributed to the Glee cast and copyrighted to Fox and all
