The Janoskians’ “This Freakin Song” Video: Idolator Premiere

By: Robbie Daw / July 29, 2014

Ready to get a ridiculously catchy song stuck in your head for at least the next 24 hours or so? The Janoskians‘ latest single is appropriately titled “This Freakin Song” (or, in its more explicit version, “This F*ckin Song”), and its sing-song melody and “la la la la la la” chorus pretty much ensure that you won’t be forgetting the track, which was co-written by Mike Posner, anytime soon.

The tune is a straight-up breakup song — “You’re gonna miss me when my song’s on the radio, you’re gonna hate this freakin song,” the guys warn — while the video finds the Australian band of music-minded pranksters sending up Michael Jackson‘s classic “Beat It.” (No, really — love the boombox, lads.)

Head below to watch the visual for the Janoskians’ latest, and let us know what you think of “This Freakin Song.”
