In case that “Cups” song wasn’t enough of an earworm, it’s back again in the trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 with the Barden Bellas giving audiences a sweet, a cappella (aca-duh) version. And then the fart noise comes.

Yes, EW‘s cover stars, the Bellas, are back and headed for the World Championships, where they are once again the underdogs.

(Spoiler alert? They do get it on.)

Best of 2012 (Behind the Scenes): How the music in 'Pitch Perfect' became aca-awesome

This fall, the music of Pitch Perfect joined a crowded field of soundtracks that cover well-loved songs, but even with shows like Glee, Smash, American Idol and The Voice hitting the scene well before it, the movie that put the spotlight on collegiate a cappella made its mark. EW talked to director Jason Moore and music supervisors Julianne Jordan and Julia Michels about getting together the music for the film about an all-girls a cappella group determined to achieve national music competition glory.
