King first rose to stardom as the singer of the timeless doo-wop group The Drifters before leaving for a lucrative solo career of his own.

He released Stand By Me in 1961 and it quickly became a US top five hit and also inspired a totally amazing movie later on down the line.

Fellow legendary musician Gary US Bonds took to Facebook to offer up a tribute to his friend. He wrote:

We think it's fair to say that after Miley Cyrus' infamous VMA performance, the word "classy" isn't exactly how one would describe her music career lately.

But there's a new cover out of her hit We Can't Stop that's so classy, even Don Draper would jam out to it!

Postmodern Jukebox and The Tee-Tones are taking Mileybird back to a time before twerking for a doo wop rendition that we just think is the bees knees!

The retro music group didn't change up any of the lyrics but made a COMPLETELY new song out of Miley's much played single.

Scott Bradlee is one of the geniuses behind the cover song and he says after seeing what Miley did at the Video Music Awards, he knew he could bring some much needed sophistication to the tune. Scott said:

"I felt it was only natural to offer a classier, twerk-free alternative to her hit, We Can’t Stop."

Right he was!

Ch-ch-check out the cover for We Can't Stop that's so good, even your grandma will enjoy it! (below)
