Postmodern Jukebox is back with another glorious reworking of a classic song.

This time, Bon Jovi's 1986 rock anthem "You Give Love a Bad Name” received the old school blues treatment.

With "The Voice of Holland" alum Jennie Lena on vocals, the glorious cover has garnered almost 200,000 views since being posted to YouTube on Thursday.

"As someone that grew up in New Jersey, I'll never turn down a chance to cover some Bon Jovi," Scott Bradlee, the group's creator, posted on its website.

"'You Give Love a Bad Name' had just the right swagger in the lyrics for Jennie to completely own this performance," he added.  

See how it compares to Bon Jovi's original here:

Postmodern Jukebox and its roster of artists, who in September will embark on a 45-date tour across North America, have covered dozens of modern pop, rock and rap songs in recent months.

Justin Bieber's "Sorry," Notorious B.I.G.'s "Juicy”and Justin Timberlake’s "Cry Me a River” have all succumbed to their effortless style.
