We all love a good mashup, and the weirder the pairing the better. Here are 10 songs that we feel are all the better for being mashed together. Ranked from
worst best to, uh, even more best.
10. LL Cool J vs Dexy’s Midnight Runners
You know that feeling of satisfaction you get when you find a lid for every single one of your Tupperware containers? This is it in song form. Blissful perfection.
9. Nirvana vs Jackson 5
We can only hope that Kurt Cobain and Michael Jackson are reenacting this together at a karaoke bar in the afterlife.
8. Adele vs AC/DC
Brace yourself. It turns out that Adele might actually be the greatest heavy metal singer of all time.
7. Metallica vs Stevie Wonder
Metallica has a history of odd musical collaborations (Lou Reed, anyone?) but this makes us wonder why they’ve never actually shared the stage with Stevie.
6. Beatles vs Shaggy
What some might call sacrilege, we call the holy grail of mashups. Although the verdict is still out on whether Lennon and McCartney would agree.
5. Justin Bieber vs Slipknot
Who would have thought that Justin Bieber and Slipknot go together like peanut butter and jelly? Poorly behaved peanut butter, and slightly-past-its-prime jelly, but still!
4. Taylor Swift vs NIN
Sorry Karlie Kloss, but if this mashup is any indication Trent Reznor is about to be T-Swift’s new BFF. We can picture their Instagram selfies already.
3. NIN vs Carly Rae Jepsen
Nine Inch Nails again!? We’re starting to think all of their songs are secretly inspired by top-40 hits. How else could they work together so seamlessly?
2. NIN vs Carly Rae Jepsen: redux
So, they’re dating right? This couldn’t be more perfect. Like their love.
1. Nelly vs BeeGees
Anyone else want to start a campaign to have Nelly star in the remake of Saturday Night Fever after watching this?
