On Friday, we brought you a pretty flippin’ amazing performance of the Replacements’ classic track “Androgynous” played by the unlikely trio of Miley Cyrus, Joan Jett and Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace. The video was created as a part of Cyrus'”Happy Hippie Backyard Sessions” to help spread the word about her new charity, the Happy Hippie Foundation focused on supporting homeless and LGBT youth as well as other minority groups. (It’s also worth noting that Friday was the three-year anniversary of Laura Jane Grace publicly coming out as transgender via Rolling Stone.) Now, Cyrus and Grace have teamed up again to perform cut off of Against Me!’s most recent album, 2014’s Transgender Dysphoria Blues, “True Trans Soul Rebel.” Check it out below!

Here are the lyrics to the song, if you’re unfamiliar:

All dressed up and nowhere to go
You’re walking the streets all alone
Another night to wish that you could forget
Making yourself up as you go along

Who’s gonna take you home tonight?
Who’s gonna take you home?
Does god bless your transsexual heart?
True trans soul rebel

Yet to be born, you’re already dead
You sleep with a gun beside you in bed
Follow it through to the obvious end
Slit your veins wide open, you bleed it out

Who’s gonna take you home tonight?
Who’s gonna take you home?
Does god bless your transsexual heart?
True trans soul rebel

You should have been a mother
You should have been a wife
You should have been gone from here years ago
You should be living a different life

Who’s gonna take you home tonight?
Who’s gonna take you home?
Does god bless your transsexual heart?
True trans soul rebel
