Watch what happens as the Rubber Band performed Weezer’s “Undone – The Sweater Song” at Grosse Pointe Music Academy’s spring recital in Grosse Pointe Woods.

The video of the spring music recital, uploaded on YouTube on Thursday, has become a viral darling of the Internet. Even Weezer has Tweeted about it:

“Some are saying this cover of Undone went horribly wrong – we say its the best version we've ever seen!”

MTV.com declared it an "adorable" fail.

EllenTV said: "Their performance began without any kinks -- four kids in a rock band taking on Weezer's "Undone" for a school recital. They even nailed the riff! As the host noted, this so-called fail was actually a good thing. The kid made history with the first ever 'rock 'n' roll smashed keyboard! They'll be performing at Coachella in no time.'

Gawker.com said: "This group of kids from Michigan's Grosse Pointe Music Academy presumably went through a dozen weekly rehearsals for their rock band class, all culminating in this: Playing Weezer's 'Undone (The Sweater Song)' — a song that, judging by their ages, they're familiar with from Rock Band — at their big debut gig.

"Even knowing that something is about to go hilariously wrong, you'll want to root for them as they recover from a shaky countdown, (sort of) find their rhythm, and prepare to launch into the vocal section. Instead, you can only watch as everything unravels, and something is soon lying on the floor. Lying on the floor.

'They've come undone."
