Jax Covers “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus

Exclusively on Postmodern Jukebox, Jax made her debut on the site with her cover of Wheatus’ hit song “Teenage Dirtbag.”

Within the song listeners hear a Janis Joplin vibe as she adds a touch of the legendary singer’s “Piece Of My Heart” into the track.

“The combination of its lyrical storyline and the Janis Joplin classic rock sound makes for a particularly interesting juxtaposition,” said the creator of Postmodern Jukebox, Scott Bradlee. He continued saying, “Jax is clearly no stranger to Joplin’s music, either. Her singing connects seamlessly to the lyrics here; vulnerable at some points, and defiantly soaring at others.”


“Working with her allowed me to see what an incredibly rare talent she is – she is full of creative ideas, hardworking, and hilariously down to earth,” said Scott. “She’s already overcome many challenges in her own life, and there’s no question that she’s going to go on to have tremendous success as an artist.”

You can pre-order Jax’s new EP titled Funny, available January 27th, HERE.

My name is Melanie Gomez (22) and I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
