Classic Mashups 1

I am going to try to limit my mashup posts to once a week, but for the first week I’m going to be sporadically throwing up a bunch of what I consider to be classic mashups, just to get you all caught up on the mashup genre if you aren’t a big fan.  If you like what you hear check out the /r/mashups subreddit.

99 Luft Problems by Jay-Zeezer
Nena’s 99 Luftballoons vs Jay Z’s 99 Problems
(OK, the first transition is a little harsh, but this is a classic in the genre.)

DMX The Tank by Koolfox
Thomas The Tank Engine Theme vs DMX’s Get It On The Floor

Thunder Busters by Wax Audio
AC/DC’s Thunderstruck vs Ray Parker Jr’s Ghostbusters

“Cooking by the Book ft. Lil Jon” by Mastgrr and Hatperson
Lazy Town’s “Cooking by the Book” vs Lil Jon’s “Step Yo Game Up”
(So classic it has an entry in Know Your Meme)

“Call Me A Hole” by PomDeter
Carly Rae Jespen’s “Call Me Maybe” vs NIN’s “Head Like A Hole”
(created on the /r/Mashups subreddit from a request by carly_ray_reznor)

“We Are Coming Undone” by iosine
Taylor Swift’s “We are never ever ever getting back together” vs Korn’s “Coming Undone”

“Never Gonna Give Up Your Teen Spirit” by Morgoth
Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” vs Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”
(Great for Rick Rolling people)

“Oh No” by Girltalk
Black Sabbath, Jay-Z, Ludacris, NWA, Jane’s Addiction, and David Banner ft. Chris Brown
(Girltalk is great at doing intricate arrangements like this with a million different tracks at once)

“Rugrats theme vs Kanye West vs Jay Z Gold Digger 99 Problems Mashup”
by thebeatschool

“Eminem vs Bob the Builder” by ???
Various Eminem Songs vs Bob the Builder Theme
(I don’t know who did this. Some sites cite Weird Al, but there is no way he did this. The mashup is way too messy and amateur for that. Great mashup, lots of fun, but it lacks the technical polish that Weird Al would give it)
