Musical mashup genius Bill McClintock created a new musical group called James Against the Machine by combining Rage Against the Machine’s Take the Power Back and James Brown’s Soul Power, with a little Atomic Punk energy from Van Halen tossed in for extra flavor.
Awesome Bill Mcclintock
While most people think of KISS as a hard rock band, they also recorded adult contemporary and even some disco tracks. Bill McClintock took full advantage of the latter to create a mashup with Boogie Wonderland, resulting in a new 1970s supergroup known as Earth, Kiss, and Fire. Listen carefully, and you might also get a little taste of Wild Cherry.
Mashup maven Bill McClintock combined two highly-incompatible songs into one, amalgamating Wham!’s Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Black Sabbath’s Children of the Grave, thus forming a new band called “Blam!” He snuck in a sweet guitar solo from Eddie Van Halen too.
Get Get Up. James Brown meets Judas Priest in another genius mashup by music editor Bill McClintock. Mixing soul vocals and heavy metal rhythms, the track is a real banger that makes us wish this collaboration had happened in real life. See if you can spot the audio cameos by Metallica and Megadeth.
Mashup maker Bill McClintock combined tracks from two bands at opposite ends of the musical spectrum: Steely Dan and Mötley Crüe. The result is a delicious blend of jazz, rock, and heavy metal. Listen closely, and you might hear some Ted Nugent and Van Halen too.
I’ll just stay here, locked behind the door… swaying to the symphony of destruction. Bill McClintock combined the music of The Pointer Sisters’, Megadeth, Metallica, and Blue Oyster Cult into a molten-hot bouillabaisse of disco metal. If this doesn’t get you dancing at your desk, we don’t know what will.
Just when we finally purged Los Del Río’s mind-numbing hit Macarena from the furthest recesses of our brains, remixer Bill McClintock had to go and put it right back in. Only this time, it’s been combined with the Disturbed track Stupify. Yep, this is definitely another disturbing creation.
Disco and heavy metal. They go together like peanut butter and chocolate. At least that’s how we feel after listening to Bill McClintock’s unlikely mashup, which combines Donna Summer’s 1979 hit Bad Girls with Glenn Danzig’s Mother. Toot toot, hey, tell your children not to walk my way.
Let’s go crazy… down in this Hell. Bill McClintock imagines a world where Prince and Slayer could perform on the same stage, combining bits of Let’s Go Crazy, Black Magic, Angel of Death, Seasons in the Abyss, and War Ensemble, with a dash of Van Halen’s I’m the One and Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love for added flavor.
The 1980s gave us quite the variety of music. Bill McClintock imagines what might have happened if Iron Maiden and Michael Sembello went on tour in 1983 and performed a song together. We would have gone with the title “She’s a Maniac Trooper,” which sounds much more like a 1980s sci-fi action movie.
We can’t decide if Bill McClintock’s Van Halen-Hank Williams musical mashup belongs on There I Ruined It or if it’s the work of a mad genius. You’ll never hear Jump the same way again after you hear it turned into the twangy country ballad Your Cheatin’ Heart. Imagine if Eddie Van Halen played the slide guitar.
Remixer Bill McClintock’s latest madcap mashup combines the music from the Huey Lewis and the News pop hit Hip to Be Square with James Hetfield’s vocals from Metallica’s Enter Sandman. The unholy offspring of the two songs is either the worst idea ever or pure genius.
It’s impossible to listen to the Young MC track Bust a Move without doing exactly what its title says. Remixer Bill McClintock combined MC’s infectious rhythms with Buffalo Springfield’s timeless protest song For What It’s Worth, giving it a groovy new sound. Listen close, and you’ll catch some Def Leppard, GN’R, and Van Halen too.
Music mashup master Bill McClintock is at it again. This time, he managed to combine the Motown sounds of The Isley Brother’s classic Shout! with the metal edge of Motörhead’s Ace of Spades, giving frat boys a whole new kind of chant for their toga parties. Shoo-be-doo-wop-bop.
Sadly, it’s an impossibility now, but what would have happened if James Brown had joined Lemmy and the band on stage during a Motörhead concert? Well, thanks to mashup artist Bill McClintock, we need wonder no longer. So crank up your volume to 11, and rock out with the Godfather of Soul and the Master of Metal.
Musical musician Bill McClintock once again works his wizardry, combining two songs that you’d never expect to work together into one song that does. Listen up and enjoy as Dire Straits’ Money for Nothing melds brilliantly with Smokey Robinson and the Miracles’ Shop Around.
