Miley Cyrus recently launched an organization called the Happy Hippie Foundation focused on supporting homeless and LGBT youth as well as other minority groups. To help spread the word, the former Hannah Montana star has been recruiting some of her favorite musicians to perform some of their favorite songs together. Thus, today’s installment of Cyrus’ “Happy Hippie Backyard Sessions” where she is joined by not only Laura Jane Grace and Atom Willard of Against Me! but also recent Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Joan Jett. (That’s pretty decent shoulders to rub up against, no?) Together, the group perform a faithful cover of the Replacements classic “Androgynous.” You can watch the video below.

For those unfamiliar with the source material, here are the lyrics. It should be abundantly clear why this song was chosen by these three women.

Here comes Dick, he’s wearing a skirt
Here comes Jane, y’know she’s sporting a chain
Same hair, revolution
Same build, evolution
Tomorrow who’s gonna fuss

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than you know, love each other so
Androgynous

Don’t get him wrong and don’t get him mad
He might be a father, but he sure ain’t a dad
And she don’t need advice that’s sent at her
She’s happy with the way she looks
She’s happy with her gender

Mirror image, see no damage
See no evil at all
Kewpie dolls and urine stalls
Will be laughed at
The way you’re laughed at now

Now, something meets boy, and something meets girl
They both look the same
They’re overjoyed in this world
Same hair, revolution
Unisex, evolution
Tomorrow who’s gonna fuss
And tomorrow Dick is wearing pants
And tomorrow Janie’s wearing a dress
Future outcasts and they don’t last
And today, the people dress the way that they please
The way they tried to do in the last centuries
