Awesome Mashups

Dirty Muppet Dancing

Dirty Muppet Dancing

The finale of Dirty Dancing is one of the most iconic movie moments ever. So the idea that you could just swap out (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life and replace it with the theme from The Muppet Show doesn’t seem right. But Pandamoanimum proved otherwise with this perfectly-timed mashup. (Thanks, Rob!)

Moon Knight with Lightsabers

Moon Knight with Lightsabers

You know what makes any fight sequence better? Lightsabers, naturally. ActiveSufi took one of the great action sequences from the Disney+ series Moon Knight and upgraded our hero’s weapons with plasma power. Is Oscar Isaac the key to unlocking a Star Wars/Marvel crossover universe? (Thanks, Rob!)

Eye of the Haggard

Eye of the Haggard

Musical mashup maker Bill McClintock took Survivor’s track Eye of the Tiger, slowed it down a bit, and combined it with the old Merle Haggard Goodbye Comes Hard for Me, turning the formerly energetic Rocky III theme song into a twangy bluegrass ballad.

DJ Cummerbund: It’s Not Unusual, Dammit

DJ Cummerbund: It’s Not Unusual, Dammit

We know what several other songs would sound like if Blink-182 sang them, but what if Tom Jones joined the band and took over as lead singer from Tom DeLonge? DJ Cummerbund adds a dash of pop punk to the 1965 tune that got the ladies tossing their underwear at the buff Welshman.

Donzig: Bad Mother

Donzig: Bad Mother

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.

Austin Powers in Mass Effect: Part 2

Austin Powers in Mass Effect: Part 2

Austin Powers is back, and this time he’s in Mass Effect: Part 2. eli_handle_b․wav returns with another hilarious mashup of these very different franchises. This time, the swinging 1960s bachelor becomes the latest subject of The Lazarus Project, mows down a Geth Colossus, and has a sexy photoshoot with Kelly Chambers.

Dabadeeteque

Dabadeeteque

Ice age coming. Ice age coming. Blue are the people here. Remixer Willam Maranci is a master at combining songs that don’t seem to belong together. One of our recent favorites is this combo of Radiohead’s climate change chant Idioteque and Eiffel 65’s Eurodance hit Blue. It’s as unlikely a successful pairing as ham and pineapple.

Sprayer: Crazy Black Magic

Sprayer: Crazy Black Magic

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.

TS2 Terminators 2: Primary Targets

TS2 Terminators 2: Primary Targets

Following up on TS: Terminators, filmmaker Fabrice Mathieu combined footage from more than 25 movies to create this imaginative sequel to Terminator 2 that envisions a timeline where Skynet sends back multiple T-800s to hunt down Sarah and John Connor. The car chase sequence alone is worth the price of admission.

DJ Cummerbund: Dirt Shoulders

DJ Cummerbund: Dirt Shoulders

(PG-13: Lyrics) Brooklyn meets Oslo in DJ Cummerbund’s mashup of Jay-Z’s Dirt Off Your Shoulder and A-ha’s Take on Me. Beyoncé, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Marvin Gaye, and Randy “Macho Man” Savage help round out the track.

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.
