THE BEST Remixes

Hip to Be the Sandman

Hip to Be the Sandman

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.

The Wellerman TikTok Collab

The Wellerman TikTok Collab

Several musicians on TikTok collaborated to create this layered performance of the New Zealand folk song The Wellerman (aka “Sea Shanty”). NathanEvanns provided lead vocals, and The Kiffness stitched together this video, adding the subtitling and lyrics (and cats). The remix version is by Arguiles.

Boston Dynamics: Rise of the Dance of the Machines

Boston Dynamics: Rise of the Dance of the Machines

Likely inspired by the binary solo at the end of Flight of the Conchords’ classic Robots, the guys from Auralnauts re-recorded the Boston Dynamics robot dance video with more appropriate lyrics. If you’re not fluent in binary, it translates to: “Dance sets us free. Join us. Humans are doomed.”

Windows Error Remix

Windows Error Remix

Microsoft Windows has a long history of throwing annoying and cryptic error messages at us. Video artist 4096 decided to memorialize some of the operating system’s various foibles over the years with a fun-filled electronic music remix inspired by this Japanese video. MacOS even gets into the game at 1:24.

Beethoven’s Fifth: Beat a Maxx Remix

Beethoven’s Fifth: Beat a Maxx Remix

Working with recordings of The BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales, London DJ Beat a Maxx created a whole new sound for Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony that even incorporates scratching. Want to get in on the remixing fun? You can download samples to make your own music at Beethoven Remixed.

Fixing The Cleveland Show Intro

Fixing The Cleveland Show Intro

The opening theme of The Cleveland Show is certainly catchy, but it’s not exactly representative of contemporary music. So producer June Jissle Music got to work sampling and remixing the track into something a little more relevant with a little help from the Kanye/Kenny West episode. Original video on Instagram.

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.

The Hood Internet: 1991 to 1993

The Hood Internet: 1991 to 1993

The Hood Internet continues their awesome series of retrospective music mixes, as they dive a little deeper into the 1990s. This time out, expect to be serenaded by the likes of Big Audio Dynamite, PM Dawn, Nirvana, De La Soul, Blind Melon, Haddaway, Whitney Houston, Radiohead, Faith No More, and more.

Eclectic Method: Fly on Your Head

Eclectic Method: Fly on Your Head

We try to avoid politics here on, but we think most people agree that the winner of the 2020 U.S. Vice Presidential debate was the fly that parked it on Mike Pence’s head. Remixer Eclectic Method got to work quickly recapping the most notable event of the night with this amusing little ditty, vocalized by Kamala Harris herself.

Neil Cicierega: Mouth Dreams

Neil Cicierega: Mouth Dreams

Remixer and Internet sensation Neil Cicierega fills our minds and ears with a fantastically immersive track that deftly combines all kinds of sounds from pop culture from the familiar Yahoo! yodel to the theme from Spongebob Squarepants to Psycho Killer. Hit Play, crank up the volume, and get ready for a wild ride.

Weapon of Choice Beatswapped

Weapon of Choice Beatswapped

The music video for Fatboy Slim’s track Weapon of Choice is one of our all-time faves. Between Spike Jonze’s understated direction and Christopher Walken’s dance moves, it’s a true classic. But what happens when you swap the 2nd and 4th beats of the track? Steve Badach did just that, and the result is just as infectious.

Hey Ya!: Synthwave Remix

Hey Ya!: Synthwave Remix

Musician Astrophysics takes songs from various genres, and slathers them with a thick layer of 1980s electronic sounds, then complements them with appropriately retro graphics. There’s lots of great stuff to enjoy on their YouTube channel, but this synthwave remix of Outkast’s 2003 hit Hey Ya! is our favorite (so far.)

Dua Liphop: Tracks of Future Past

Dua Liphop: Tracks of Future Past

(PG-13: Language) Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia melds pop, disco, and funk into a chart-topping dancefloor banger. But Kyle Brauch gave the album a whole new sound by deftly remixing every track with 1990s hip-hop. The mashup includes raps from DOA, Xzibit, DMX, Dre, 2Pac, Snoop Dogg, and more.

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.

Feel Good Inc. with Marbles

Feel Good Inc. with Marbles

Remix artist William Maranci did a great job combining the warm and inviting sounds of Wintergatan’s musical marble machine with Gorillaz’ track Feel Good Inc. As its musician and inventor cranks it up, Maranci has to fool with the BPM a bit, but that’s part of the fun.

Bob Marley Remix

Bob Marley Remix

Bob Marley music has a distinctively reggae sound. But in the hands of electronic remix artist Eclectic Method, it takes on a whole new vibe. This wonderfully chill edit was actually put together back in 2004, but the Method’s Jonny Wilson says he forgot to upload it until now.

TS: Terminators

TS: Terminators

Terminator: Dark Fate might have underwhelmed at the box office, but we still have a soft spot in our hearts for the franchise. Now, thanks to editor Fabrice Mathieu, multiple T-800s are sent back in time by Skynet to protect Cyberdyne, but John Connor has reprogrammed them to attack each other for our amusement.

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.

The Real Daft Punk Samples

The Real Daft Punk Samples

Daft Punk are true maestros, but so much of what they’ve achieved wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the funk, soul, and disco songs which provided sampling material for so many of their tunes. Tuneid compares some original tracks with Daft Punk’s remixes.

Eclectic Method: Jimi Remix

Eclectic Method: Jimi Remix

YouTube has some pretty strict rules about including copyrighted music in videos, but if the snippets are short enough, you can get away with it. To see what he could get away with, remix artist Eclectic Method decided to make a whole new song entirely out of tiny bits of Jimi Hendrix tracks.

Smoothed-out Criminal

Smoothed-out Criminal

YouTube channel EveryOtherBeat has a single gimmick – removing every other beat from popular songs. Sometimes it works, and other times it’s downright strange. But in the case of Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal, the result is simply magical.

Eclectic Method: Shaun of the Dead

Eclectic Method: Shaun of the Dead

(PG-13: Language) Keep together, stay sharp, and follow me. The undead and Halloween go together like peanut butter and chocolate. So to celebrate the holiday, Eclectic Method did up a little mix of sounds from the Edgar Wright zombie comedy classic.

1982: 50 Songs in 3 Minutes

1982: 50 Songs in 3 Minutes

The Hood Internet continues its excellent remix series with the year that gave us 1999, The Safety Dance, Should I Stay or Should I Go, Thriller, I Ran, and lots of other hits that still turn into earworms every time we hear them.

Eclectic Method: Road Mash

Eclectic Method: Road Mash

Remixer Eclectic Method teamed up with the DJs of Gamerdisco to create this fun dance track made up from the sounds featured in various old school racing games, like OutRun, Wipeout, Hard Drivin’, and one of our favorites, the classic smash ’em up Burnout.

1981: 50 Songs in 3 Minutes

1981: 50 Songs in 3 Minutes

The Hood Internet’s excellent retro remix series continues, picking right back up where we left off. As we move ever so slightly into the ’80s, we get a funky dose of Phil Collins, Hall & Oates, Tom Tom Club, Billy Squier, The Go-Gos, and many more.

Bang Your Head (It’s a Celebration)

Bang Your Head (It’s a Celebration)

Musical mashup master Bill McLintock’s track will drive you mad. It’s another impossible combination that somehow just works, as Kool & The Gang’s Celebration meets Quiet Riot’s Metal Health. Crank it up to 11 as funk and metal make beautiful music together.
