The Most Insane Song Mashups

Mashups take two different things and fuse them together to create something new. While mashups can be found in many creations, music mashups tend to be the most common type people think of. Sometimes, fusions work well, making something amazing. And sometimes...well, the mashups make you wish you could unhear the mishmash of chaos. There are plenty of great mashups that exist like the one of Rick Astley, Avicii, and the song “Chumbawamba” (check it out below) and the one of Linkin Park, Snoop Dogg, and Dr. Dre titled, “The Next Numb Encore” (check it out below). 





But this post isn’t necessarily about mashups that work. They’re not even about whether they’re good or bad. This list is full of mashups so unhinged and funny, we had to share them. I’m not going to lie to you and say some of these mashups don’t slap, but they’re not mashups you’d necessarily recommend first for a mashup. There’s a good chance you didn’t even know they existed. Hopefully after reading this post, you don’t wish you’d never learned about these insane collaborations.  


"Closer But It's Funkytown By Lipps Inc."

The upbeat “Funkytown” by Lipps Inc with the darker, sensual “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails is an odd pairing yet when blended together...it almost works? Following the lyrics of “Closer” with the video cutting clips from the “Funkytown” music video and Nine Inch Nails performance of “Closer” together, it makes for a jarring listening experience. The strangest part comes at 2:12 where “Funkytown” crescendos with the chorus to “Closer” where you’re hearing the lyrics to “Closer” but seeing this disco, happy video from Lipps Inc. It’s gold.  



"Bohemian WAPsody"

I don’t even think I need to explain why this one is unhinged. Look no further than the title for why it’s on this list. Hearing Cardi B sing “certified freak, seven days a week” over the tune of “Bohemian Rhapsody” is just so insanely funny. The craziest bit is when they swap the “Gallileo” part with Cardi B chanting, “macaroni. Macaroni in a pot” then swapping the “no no no” for “WAP WAP WAP.” Whoever came up with this collaboration – are you okay? What inspired you to make this mashup? This is just one of many mashups including “WAP” and every single one is just as insane as this one. Go down that rabbit hole if you dare. 


 

"Welcome to the Christmas Parade"

Okay I must admit, while this mashup is unhinged on the surface, it's actually a pretty good one. I mean, you’d be surprised to hear that a mashup of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey and “Welcome to the Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance is solid, but give it a listen and decide for yourself if you agree. The fact that My Chemical Romance already covered Carey’s classic Christmas song further proves that this collaboration is a good one. The best part of this mashup is when Gerard Way sings, “To join the black parade” followed immediately by Mariah Carey singing, “All I want for Christmas is you.” These songs on paper don’t seem to fit together, yet somehow, they do.  



"In the End But It's the Danny Phantom Intro"

If you grew up with Nickelodeon in the mid-2000s, this thumbnail probably brings about a wave of nostalgia. This mashup is like Bohemian WAPsody in the sense where one asks, who in the world thought up putting these two songs together? This mashup takes the classic Linkin Park song, “In the End” and alters the theme song for Danny Phantom to fit the tune of “In the End.” Both pieces of music came from the 2000s, so while it’s a crazy collaboration to come up with, they do at least come from the same era.  


 

"The 7th Element BAD GUY"

Some person out there decided to put “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish together with “The 7th Element” by Vitas, and the mashup is...unique to say the least. For those who don’t think they know “The 7th Element”, you might remember the meme making rounds in 2015 of a guy dressed like a humanoid alien going “ah ah ah” with a tongue roll. If not, I’m sure the mashup will either refresh your memory or introduce to the fascinating Russian song. Its pairing is a fascinating one. The best part of this mashup comes with the chorus where “The 7th Element” part that goes “ah ah ah” is edited to fit the fast-paced chorus of “Bad Guy” and it’s so insane, but it’s entertaining.   



"All Star but it's 'Take Me Home Country Roads'"

This mashup of “All Star” by Smash Mouth and “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by John Denver is wild because it alters the vocals from “All Star” to fit the melody of the John Denver song, and it sounds really wrong. It feels very edited, and noticing those edits makes the mashup feel off, maybe even a little cursed. The wildest bit is when the whistling from “All Star” is edited in during the instrumental of “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” Check it out if you dare. 



"If You Wanna Breathe My Sulfur"

Did you ever think you’d hear a mashup of Slipknot and The Spice Girls? YouTuber Bill McClintock has filled that void you didn’t know you had. The groups are total opposites when it comes to mood. When they’re put together, it feels wrong somehow, but also somehow works. The best part is when it cuts together the lyrics, of Slipknot singer Corey Taylor yelling, “like breathing in sulfur” with The Spice Girls lyric, “Slam your body down and wind it all around.” Mashup craziness. It’s awesome. 



"Thomas Writes Sin Not Tragedies"

Finally, we have one that just hurts your ears to listen to, and that’s the mashup of the Thomas the Train theme song with the Panic at the Disco track, “I Write Sins, Not Tragedies.” It’s probably one of the most unhinged selections in this blog. Seriously, who thought up this collaboration? Insane.  

 

Mashups can change how you see two songs or ruin them forever. How did the following mashups affect you? Let us know in the comments! Thanks for reading this blog, and we hope you got a laugh out of a few of these insane mashups. Thanks for reading!
