Postmodern Jukebox is a group that covers various bands from different eras. The group uploads their noir looking music videos of themselves performing these hits with a unique Jazz twist.

The video starts with a noir black and white theme with the band playing their instruments. The group covers the critically acclaimed Metallica 1991 classic song all while bringing in a jazz-filled orchestra that makes you want to dance.


Surprisingly, the jazzy rendition works perfectly and sounds like an original song if you weren’t familiar with the group Metallica. The song has been viewed over 930,000 times and has been shared over 216K times. It’s not hard to see why the group has a number of views and shares after you hear them.


Perhaps an even more interesting detail about this video isn’t the jazz theme cover, but rather the singer. Caroline Baran is the 15-year-old who was recently picked up by the group after a brief talent search.


After hearing her sing the song, you can understand why the Postmodern Jukebox picked her; she has some impressive pipes. She has one of those voices that could be successful in any decade. And when she hits her high notes in the song, it sends chills down your spine.


Postmodern Jukebox is enjoying increasing success and recognition for their jazz-fueled songs that cover popular hits from any and all genres.

Recently, the group covered Radiohead’s “Creep.” and OutKast‘s “Hey Ya” as well as covers from Celine Dion and Brittany Spears.


It’s nice to see jazz making a comeback and with groups like these highlighting this genre,  it won’t be long until jazz is back on top once again.
