Via my brother and others before that he got it from, there’s a new mash up that’s pretty good. It’s not a mash-up in the traditional sense like the Danger Mouse’s Grey Album or any of Dsico’s stuff, it’s not a mashing to unlike songs, melody of one with the background of the other. This one doesn’t take much talent at all, in fact. I could have probably made this mashup.

But it’s interesting nonetheless. It’s two Nickelback songs, one in the left chanel and one in the right and they match up really well. Note that one was probably pitch shifted and time compressed, so don’t be amazed that it’s in the same key or that the tempo is exactly the same, be amazed that the structure and relative timing of the songs are spot on.

When I first heard of this, I wasn’t going to even listen to it; I didn’t find it that interesting, but hearing the actual mash up is worth the couple minutes at least.

Without further ado, here it is.

A lot of people’s reactions seem to be that this is horrible. I don’t know. I think it’s sort of great that someone can make money twice off of the same song with slightly different packaging. There was never a claim that what was on pop radio was good.
