I Want You Bach

I Want You Bach

The Piano Guys mash up the sounds of Johann Sebastian Bach with the Jackson 5’s I Want You Back – which is now permanently intertwined in our minds with Dancing Baby Groot – who should now be wearing a powdered wig.

Dinosaurs x Notorious B.I.G.

For his latest edit, sample-master Eclectic Method took sound bites from the Terminator universe, and mashed them up into an edgy electronic track loaded with the sounds of weaponry and futuristic killing machines.

I Can’t Enter That (No Sandman)

Mashup master Neil Cicierga managed to combine two of the most incompatible tunes – Hall and Oates I Can’t Go for That and Metallica’s Enter Sandman into a single track that’s just so bizarre that it’s actually brilliant.

Cathy CK

Cathy CK

(NSFW: Language) Eric Simmons juxtaposed the jokes of Louis C.K. over Cathy Guisewite’s legendary comic strip. The result is as natural as peanut butter and jelly, Peanuts and The Smiths, Cathy and “Aack!”, Cinnabon and Louie.

Nuthin’ But a G Thang

Nuthin’ But a G Thang

Universes awkwardly collided when OG sax player Kenny G performed Regulate with Warren G. The best part about this is you can see both men are in disbelief at what they’re doing. At least they got paid to be punchlines.

Rick Simon

Rick Simon

YouTuber Redtank took video elements from rapper Rick Ross (er RO$$), and replaced the music with Paul Simon’s Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard, which should make absolutely no sense, but somehow it works brilliantly.

Shake It Off (The Perfect Drug)

Shake It Off (The Perfect Drug)

Isosine created this unlikely, yet absolutely brilliant remix of Taylor Swift’s pop hit Shake it Off and Nine Inch Nails’ dark soliloquy The Perfect Drug. It’s the musical equivalent of Black Swan. Download the MP3 here.

Paranoid: Jazz Version

Musician Andy Rehfeldt transforms Black Sabbath’s metal classic Paranoid into an upbeat jazz tune, preserving Ozzy Osbourne’s original vocals, but forever lightening the mood of the track. Also, we prefer to remember Ozzy this way.

Meta Hip Hop

Eclectic Method’s latest track combines numerous classic hip hop tracks, which themselves are known for sampling their sources, creating a sort of hiphopception track that’s one level further removed from its source tracks.

Die Hard: Alien vs. Predator

Die Hard: Alien vs. Predator

YouTuber ChiefBrodyRules does what he can to fix Alien vs. Predator by adding officer John McClane into the middle of the fray between the warring alien species. We wonder how you say “Yippee Ki-Yay, Mother F**ker!” in Yautja.

True Lebowski

True Lebowski

Bowling is a flat circle in these spot-on opening credits for The Big Lebowski made in the distinctive style of True Detective‘s opener. It loses steam at the end, but the main character intros are top notch. Made by Darrin Fullerton.

United State of Pop 2014

The end of the year wouldn’t be complete without DJ Earworm’s annual mix of the United States’ biggest pop hits. This year’s mashup Do What You Wanna Do features Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, John Legend, Meghan Trainor and more.

Jurassic Park x Ace Ventura

Jurassic Park x Ace Ventura
