Here's A Completely NEW Take On The 1980s Classic "Sledgehammer"

Postmodern Jukebox, with Noah Guthrie singing lead
here, dramatically rework the 1980s classic "Sledgehammer"
A lot of you remember that big hit in the 1980s, "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel.

It was the catchy song with the innovative, trippy dippy stop motion music video with coordinated singing fruit and dancing chicken meat.

OK, it was different, but the song and the music video was fun, you have to admit.  

I always like it, though, when somebody comes up with a completely different way to do a song, and the group Postmodern Jukebox rose to the occasion. (Postmodern Jukebox is really a musical collective that brings in different singers and performers to work with them, and then release videos as often as weekly. )

They give "Sledgehammer" a great 1950s rhythm and blues take which is just awesome. The video of the song is below.

Postmodern Jukebox got Noah Guthrie, who you might remember from "Glee," to do lead vocals.
