THE BEST Mashups

Closer to Funkytown

Closer to Funkytown

(PG-13: Language) If Trent Reznor was making music during the 1970s, it might have sounded something like this industrial-disco smashup by editor William Maranci, who once again proves that there are no two genres that can’t be combined as Lipps, Inc’s Funkytown and Nine Inch Nails Closer become one.

Rob Zombie Aerobics

Rob Zombie Aerobics

Aerobics videos were one of the hallmarks of 1980s cheese. And while they might have been incredibly campy when set to Olivia Newton-John music, this video shows how they can be improved upon when the choreography lines up with Rob Zombie’s Dragula. It also works well with Superbeast.

Pop Culture Typography

Pop Culture Typography

Designer Isaac Moores (aka Izac Less) created this fun animation which provides typographic lyrics to Madeon’s dance masterpiece Pop Culture, using logo graphics based on just that – pop culture. Don’t know where they’re all from? Watch this version of the clip.

DJ Cummerbund: Man-Cheetah

DJ Cummerbund: Man-Cheetah

Oo-ohh, here he comes… Remixer DJ Cummerbund presents a love letter to Danny Devito’s “Man-Cheetah” from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia with a track that manages to blend Hall and Oates, The Strokes, The White Stripes, and Chris Isaak into a deliciously spicy bowl of musical gumbo.

Concatenation 2: Olympic Game

Concatenation 2: Olympic Game

Video artist Donato “Milkyeyes” Sansone combined footage of Olympic athletes performing a variety of movements, from gymnastics to diving to track and field events, seamlessly melding together their motions so they look like one extended routine. The technique is a refinement of his earlier clip, Concatenation.

Sledgehammer as Hell

Sledgehammer as Hell

What happens when put two earworms in a jar, poke some holes in its lid, and leave them to get freaky? You end up with something like DJ Cummerbund’s combo of Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer and Lizzo’s Good as Hell. Toss in a little Stevie Wonder, Red Hot Chili Peppers, TLC, and Rihanna, and you have a meta-hit on your hands.

The Nice Jedi

The Nice Jedi

Imagine if you will, that the 2002 Star Wars prequel Attack of the Clones was actually a buddy movie about a pair of P.I.s who use their Jedi powers to investigate crimes in the seedy underbelly of Coruscant. That’s what you’ve got here, courtesy of trailer editor Imperator Cuts in a playful nod to Shane Black’s The Nice Guys.

DJ Cummerbund: Weird Betty

DJ Cummerbund: Weird Betty

Remember that John Hughes movie where Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith engineered their own unrealistic fantasy woman? Well what if her name wasn’t Lisa, but instead was Black Betty? Imagine no longer. Thanks to mashup artist DJ Cummerbund, we have our answer. Bam-ba-Lam, mama-sa, mama-koosa!

Isleyhead: Ace of Shout

Isleyhead: Ace of Shout

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.

Sci-Fi & Horror Virus Survival

Sci-Fi & Horror Virus Survival

(PG-13: Gore/Language) Need advice on how to survive during a viral outbreak? Check out filmmakers Evan Gorski’s and Michael Dougherty’s clip “Everything I Need to Know to Survive COVID-19 I Learned by Watching Sci-fi and Horror Movies.” We’re still going with “Have a nice cold pint… and wait for all this to blow over.”

Star Wars to the Danger Zone

Star Wars to the Danger Zone

What happens when you replace the F-14A Tomcats in Top Gun with X-Wing Fighters? Movie magic. Jackson McKay combined the Kenny Loggins’ classic Danger Zone with footage from Star Wars episodes IV through IX and Rogue One, giving us the only Star Wars soundtrack that works even better than one by John Williams.

DJ Cummerbund: I Will Jump

DJ Cummerbund: I Will Jump

If Van Halen made disco music, it might have sounded something like this crazy mashup by DJ Cummerbund that blends together the hair band’s rock hit Jump with Gloria Gaynor’s dance floor anthem I Will Survive. It’s hard to believe these songs were released just 5 years apart.

DOOM Crossing: Eternal Horizons

DOOM Crossing: Eternal Horizons

With both Animal Crossing: New Horizons and DOOM Eternal released on the same day, The Chalkeaters and singer Natalia Natchan thought it might be fun if the two games were actually one. And so, they made a song and an animated music video featuring the adorable Isabelle and her new friend, DOOM Slayer. Full song here.

My Humps f/Mozart

My Humps f/Mozart

Being stuck on lockdown gets your mind roaming in some strange directions. For remixer William Maranci, it made him wonder what a The Black Eyed Peas and Mozart collaboration might have sounded like. Whatcha gonna do with all that junk inside your trunk, Wolfgang?

Lovely Day + Lizzo Mashup

Lovely Day + Lizzo Mashup

What happens when your Lovely Day is Good as Hell? We imagine it sounds something like this excellent musical mashup by the guys from Pomplamoose, who managed to seamlessly combine the Bill Withers classic with Lizzo’s 2019 pop megahit into one delightfully upbeat tune.

James Brotörhead: Superkill

James Brotörhead: Superkill

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.

Earth, Wind, Fire & Kids

Earth, Wind, Fire & Kids

Control yourself, take only what you need from the 21st day of September. Remix artist William Maranci performed a wild combo maneuver with this track, which seamlessly mashes up MGMT’s Kids with Earth, Wind & Fire’s September.

Toyworld

Toyworld

Imagine for a moment that the toys in the Toy Story franchise weren’t alive in the way Pixar wants us to believe they are, and instead are synthetic hosts created by the Delos Corporation. Nico Bellamy shares that vision with us in his hilariously dark mashup trailer of Toy Story and Westworld.

Scatman’s Theme

Scatman’s Theme

Things get really, really strange as the world of Mortal Kombat is invaded by 1990s one-hit wonder Scatman John. Mashup maker DJ Cummerbund’s music video is equally as insane as the musical combination, which manages to bake in some Spice Girls and Nirvana for good measure.

Another One’s Hot In Herre

Another One’s Hot In Herre

What happens when Nelly meets up with Queen? In the hands of musical mashup artist DJ Cummerbund, strange magic, that’s what. Though things start going off the rails when the track starts running backwards at the end.

My Name Is

My Name Is

Editor Ariel Avissar offers up the perfect bite-sized video morsel, seamlessly mashing up scenes of Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride with Eminem’s 1999 hit My Name Is. The Six-Fingered Man better watch out, that’s all we’re saying.

2010-2019 Movie Trailer Mashup

2010-2019 Movie Trailer Mashup

(PG-13: Language) Editor Sleepy Skunk recently bestowed us with his regular end-of-year movie trailer mashup. But since it’s the end of a decade, he decided to do one better, and put together this epic and emotional montage of movie moments from the past 10 years as a bonus. How many of these movies did you see?

Detroit Rock Lobster

Detroit Rock Lobster

Everybody’s rockin! Get up! Everybody’s gonna move their feet! Remix artist DJ Cummerbund brings us another unlikely pairing: KISS and The B-52s, two groups at their peak of popularity around the same time, but each with something very different to bring to the table.

Last Angel of Christmas

Last Angel of Christmas

Celebrate the holidays with some Slayer, courtesy of mashup artist Andy Rehfeldt, who combined the devilish vocals from their track Angel of Death with the upbeat 80s synth-pop of Wham!’s holiday classic Last Christmas.

Making Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Pop-Tarts

Making Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Pop-Tarts

Just because two foods can be combined doesn’t mean it should be done. But Good Mythical Morning’s series Snack Smash does just that all the time. In this clip, host Josh Scherer managed to make Pop-Tarts that taste like Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, and we got heartburn just looking at the video.

2019 Movie Trailer Mashup

2019 Movie Trailer Mashup

(PG-13) Editor Sleepy Skunk is back with his annual supercut of movie trailers, paying tribute to the the wide range of cinema splashed up on screens of all sizes over the course of 2019. Like every year, there were some greats and some stinkers, but the trailers inevitably thrill. Keep an eye on his Tumblr for the full list of films.
