“Achy Breaky Heart” is back: But this reboot is a far cry from the original honky-tonk hit.

Rapper Buck 22 and a mullet-free Billy Ray Cyrus have teamed up to create a sequel tune, “Achy Breaky 2.”

The music video hit the Internet on Tuesday, showcasing a hip-hop spin on Cyrus’s classic song. It keeps the twangy chorus of the original, but adds a barrage of pop culture references, including a shout-out to daughter Miley Cyrus with the line, “Miley keeps twerking. Daddy keeps working.”

Speaking of twerking, the “Achy Breaky 2” video is overrun with shake-happy lady aliens. Larry King, electric violins and some very skimpy space gear also make cameo appearances. (Warning: This isn’t your mom’s line dance song.)

Below, compare Buck 22 and Cyrus’s new (and NSFW) take on “Achy Breaky” with the 1992 original.
