Coldplay‘s live cover of “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” is approved by the Backstreet Boys themselves.

Chris Martin and company put their spin on the ’90s boy band classic during a recent concert in Gothenburg, Sweden. In an Instagram post sharing video of the performance, the Boys write, “Buzzing from @coldplay’s cover of ‘Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)’!”

“Truly an honor,” they add.

Coldplay is currently touring Europe in continued support of the band’s 2021 album, Music of the Spheres. They’ll launch a U.S. trek in September.
