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.

P.S. did anyone watch the season premiere of “King of the Nerds” last night. I expected to hate it from the commercials but it was pretty awesome. Why am I mentioning this here? One of the contestants says Jonathan Coulton is her favorite musician.
