Awesome Mashups

She’s a Trooper

She’s a Trooper

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.

DJ Cummerbund: Back In Lap

DJ Cummerbund: Back In Lap

What happens when you take N.E.R.D.’s banger Lapdance and combine it with AC/DC’s Back in Black? Musical genius, that’s what. DJ Cummerbund works his magic on these two very different songs and added a dash of Big & Rich for flavor. It’s so good that the track scored a spot on the Deadpool 3 soundtrack.

Metallica Goes Disco

Metallica Goes Disco

For those too young to remember, Leo Sayer was a maestro of disco-pop music in the 1970s. To make things interesting, mashup artist Bill McClintock melded the pop sounds of You Make Me Feel Like Dancing with Metallica’s Sad But True for a combination as delicious as chocolate and peanut butter.

Ride the Boulevard of Lightning Dreams

Ride the Boulevard of Lightning Dreams

DJ Cummerbund combined the sounds of Green Day, Warren Zeiders, Metallica, and Randy “Macho Man” Savage to create a twangy, country-fied mashup of Ride the Lightning and Boulevard of Broken Dreams.

Squid Game But with Robots

Squid Game But with Robots

A whole lot of people died in Squid Game. But would it have been any better if the eliminated contestants were robots instead? Shutter Authority had a little CGI fun in Blender and replaced the humans with robots in the iconic Red Light, Green Light sequence. Will WALL-E make it to the finish line?

It’s Always Sunny in South Korea

It’s Always Sunny in South Korea

Frank and Mack are as desperate as ever and find themselves as contestant number 218 and 456 on Squid Game. But can The Warthog play it subtle and take home the contents of the piggy bank, or will he just lose his mind and ruin everything as usual?

If Austin Powers Starred in Mass Effect

If Austin Powers Starred in Mass Effect

After being frozen for over 220 years, a secret agent awakens to find himself in a strange new world surrounded by unfamiliar characters. Can he win them over with his swinging 1960s charm, or will the Reapers destroy him? eli_handle_b․wav created this hilarious mashup of two very strange bedfellows.

Closebusters

Closebusters

Musical mashup and meme maker William Maranci managed to assemble this brilliant mashup just in time for Halloween, somehow blending together Ray Parker Jr.’s theme from Ghostbusters with Nine Inch Nails’ industrial classic Closer.

Nelson Visits Midnight City

Nelson Visits Midnight City

The Simpsons’ resident bully Nelson Muntz spends his days in Springfield, and his evenings in Midnight City. Or at least that’s what we’ve been lead to believe by Teo Domani, who figured out that Nelson’s familiar “Ha-Ha!” taunt fits perfectly into the electronic sounds of the track by M83.

Another One Bites the Tequila

Another One Bites the Tequila

Because truly nothing is sacred to the warped minds behind There I Ruined It, here’s a version of Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust, mashed up with The Champs’ 1958 hit track Tequila, also known as Pee-Wee Herman’s favorite dance song. Clearly, much tequila was consumed when they came up with this idea.

Maiden Goes to Hollywood

Maiden Goes to Hollywood

Wax Audio blended together the sounds of two very different bands with seemingly little in common. But both Iron Maiden and Frankie Goes to Hollywood share more than just British roots and 1984 hit albums – they both created music inspired by the works of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

John Mayer Slayer

John Mayer Slayer

From the warped mind of Andy Rehfeldt comes a collaboration we never knew we wanted until now, with John Mayer on vocals, backed by the speed metal guitar sounds of Slayer. We’re not sure how it works, but the lyrics from Mayer’s Carry Me Away just seem to fit perfectly.

Your Jumpin’ Heart

Your Jumpin’ Heart

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.

Loser: Square Dance Edition

Loser: Square Dance Edition

There I Ruined It is back to mess with another classic tune, transforming Beck’s 1994 hit Loser into a twangy Bluegrass tune best suited to square dancing. Kill the headlights and put it in neutral! Now Do-si-do and Promenade!

A Crossover of Events

A Crossover of Events

(PG-13: Gore, Language) What if all of your favorite action franchises collided into one massive crossover event? Editor Abs4Fun stitched together this series of clips that create a cohesive multi-franchise universe, linking the worlds together with portals. If anyone could make this movie, it would have to be Disney.

DJ Cummerbund: Dr. Dinosaur

DJ Cummerbund: Dr. Dinosaur

Boom boom, akalaka laka boom! Remix master DJ Cummerbund goes prehistoric with this mashup, combining music from Mötley Crüe, Was (Not Was), The Gap Band, Pantera, and Soundgarden. Featuring bonus cameos by Jeff Goldblum, Mario and Luigi, Bob-Omb, the cast of Dinosaurs, and of course Randy “Macho Man” Savage.

Kings Of Leon x Depeche Mode

Kings Of Leon x Depeche Mode

Deco is back with another great music mashup from two popular songs. This time, the UK musicians combined the rhythmic synthesizer sounds of Depeche Mode’s Enjoy the Silence with the soulful vocals of Kings of Leon’s Sex on Fire.

Classical Music Mashup IV

Classical Music Mashup IV

Musician Grant Woolard is back with the latest edition of his wonderful Classical Music Mashups. This time out, there are 70 pieces of classical music from Mozart, Bizet, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, and more. It’s Chopin’s 4-Minute Waltz that always gets us dancing at our desks.

Leaving on a Grunge Plane

Leaving on a Grunge Plane

There I Ruined It manages to destroy two songs at the same time, turning John Denver’s (and later Peter, Paul, and Mary’s) folk classic Leaving on a Jet Plane into Nirvana’s Heart-Shaped Box. Or is it the other way around? Honestly, you can ruin any song in seconds just by adding a slide whistle.

DJ Cummerbund: Mama, I’m Fun, Fun, Fun

DJ Cummerbund: Mama, I’m Fun, Fun, Fun

Imagine for a moment that The Beach Boys hired Ozzy Osbourne as their lead vocalist. Now click play on this video and imagine no longer. DJ Cummerbund’s unlikely mashup combines Ozzy’s earnest track Mama, I’m Coming Home with the California surf sounds of Fun, Fun, Fun.

Slamilton

I am not throwing away my 3-point shot! Remix artist Psynwav envisions what it might be like if Hamilton and Space Jam teamed up for a crossover musical about Michael Jordan’s rise to greatness on the basketball court. It seems like a looney idea, but it works brilliantly.

Start Wearing Purple: Muppet Edition

Start Wearing Purple: Muppet Edition

Sesame Street’s The Count sings along with NY polka-punk band Gogol Bordello’s track Start Wearing Purple, a song about growing old and going senile, which seems rather ironic for a vampire who is likely immortal. He’s also already purple.

No Short Skirt or Long Jacket

No Short Skirt or Long Jacket

“I want a girl with shoes… and eyes that burn like a diamond.” The object of the narrator’s affection in Cake’s 2001 track Short Skirt/Long Jacket sounds like a pretty amazing woman. But in this version edited by William Maranci, she sounds a bit less desirable. Though she is into Minecraft.

Oasis x Bronski Beat

Oasis x Bronski Beat

Imagine for a moment that the Oasis hit Wonderwall was recorded in the 1980s, and the lead vocals were performed by Jimmy Somerville instead of Liam Gallagher. Deco did a great job mashing up the track with 1984’s Smalltown Boy. Their Spice Girls / Marvin Gaye combo is a good listen too.

Holding Out for a (Jedi) Hero

Holding Out for a (Jedi) Hero

The last episode of season two of The Mandalorian was truly amazing, and Luke’s return was truly epic. Bugzkilla synced up the sequence with Bonnie Tyler’s ’80s classic Holding Out for a Hero, and it suits the scene perfectly. They followed it up with My Heart Will Go On for Din and Grogu’s teary-eyed farewell.

Time of Our Lives: 1970 to 2020

Time of Our Lives: 1970 to 2020

DJ Earworm is famous for their annual United States of Pop mashups.
