Have you ever wondered what one band’s song would sound like with one another artist’s music and/or lyrics mixed in? Well that is called a “mashup.” It is always interesting to hear your favorite song mixed to the music of someone else. Just like a cover song, sometimes they suck, sometimes they rock, and sometimes they’re just… “meh.” Here are six mashups that have been handpicked for your listening pleasure:
“Car Radio” by Twenty One Pilots/”Heartbeat” by Childish Gambino
This features the music of “Car Radio” with the rap melodies of Childish Gambino combined with a verse from Twenty One Pilots. You can listen to more Twenty One Pilots/Childish Gambino mashups here. They all go really well together.
“Speed Of Sound” by Coldplay/ “This Twilight” by Nine Inch Nails
We hear the sounds of Coldplay mixed with the vocals of Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. If you have ever listened to the original version of “This Twilight” the instrumentals are a lot darker, giving the track a more sinister feel. Coldplay’s instrumentals provide a more upbeat version to the Nine Inch Nails song.
“Islands” by Young The Giant/“Intro” by The XX
If The XX were to put vocals to “The Intro” I’d imagine that it would sound a lot like this. Sameer Ghadia’s falsetto vocals work perfectly with the beats provided by The XX.
“Do I Wanna Know?” By Arctic Monkeys/“Waiting For The Rapture” by Oasis
It wouldn’t take a lot of effort to mash these songs together, considering they both have the same beat and tempo. Oasis’ vocals work well with the tune of “Do I Wanna Know?” as well as being mixed in with the vocals of Alex Turner.
“Little Secrets” by Passion Pit/“What You Know About That” by T.I.
This mashup changes a rap song into an extremely catchy dance song. T.I.’s rap has been mixed with the sounds of Passion Pit along with the chorus of “Little Secrets.”
“Animal” by Neon Trees/ “Still Into You” by Paramore
These two go together a little too well. It’s almost as though Neon Trees re-wrote “Animal” to the tune of “Still Into You.” Haley Williams does sing the chorus once, towards the end. Other than that, this features the vocals of Tylar Glenn with the instrumentals of Paramore. But it’s not too far off from something that Neon Trees could have written.
Do You have a favorite mashup that hasn't been included here? Let us know! We would love to hear it!

Fun. performed a brand new song last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Check it out!
Our friends from OK Go have a brand new video, and it is just as insane and visually stunning as all of their previous work. It is definiltely worth watching; just don't let it mess with your brain too much. The thing with OK Go is that their video concepts often overshadow the quality of the song. After you watch the video, play it again, but listen to the song.

It's Fathers Day weekend!
I'm not so big with the mushy stuff. If you want to say something nice to someone, you should say it to them personally and not bore everyone to death with it. BUT, since it's Father's Day, and since I'm told that writing a daily blog is now a job requirement, I thought I'd take a moment to blog about my Pops.
That's my Pop!
My Dad is THE quintessential badass. In my 36 years on this earth I've seen him engage in no less than 10 fights with complete strangers. Not arguments. Not disagreements. I'm talking full on, punching and rolling on the ground ass kickery. Everything from a rival Little League coach, to some guy at Disneyland. He tried to fight the cashier at a Checker Auto Parts once when the guy made fun of ME for having pink hair. Something he himself gave me shit for on an hourly basis. I was married and moved out at the time, so he'd have to call me to meet his personal quota. I'm pretty sure all Dad's do that though.
Your hair makes you look like one of them guys what kisses other guys.
Growing up in the 80's meant that my Dad had to compete with TV's greatest Dad's. Sure, Willy from Alf was awesome, but did he ever buy his punk rock-toy collecting son and his friends Arby's when he caught them ditching school? No. Did Cliff Huxtable ever jump out of a boat while riding "It's A Small World" after barfing on a nice young couple from Oregon sitting in front of him? I'll bet you 24 Jell-O pudding pops that he didn't. Sidenote: I've also seen him puke in public 7 times, and not once did he ever help clean it up. Luckily for me, even though he was very old school growing up, he only barely kicked my ass for putting a black and yellow X96 sticker on his motorhome when I was 15.
Instead he made me star in one of the Terminator movies.
The man made sure I knew to "kick ass at everything you do, or don't do it" and that "Not everyone is going to like you. Jesus was perfect and even HE had people that hated him". He's one of the most politically incorrect people I've ever met, yet shows everyone more respect than they deserve, and he's never once NOT stood up for me.
So Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad's this weekend. If you need me, I'll be watching Nascar and eating Popeye's with my old man on Sunday.
