Triple Trouble by Beastie Boys vs. Animotion
Ahhh, the humble mash up. A musical delicacy that tasted rather delicious for a short time last decade. Within a year, the spuds were long past their use by date, sat sprouting in a dark cupboard along with ironic cover versions and Linkin Park and Jay Z collaborations.
At their best, their charm is hard to resist (exhibit A and exhibit B). But its not hard to see why this most faddiest of fads died off - 99.8% of those who attempted them, failed abysmally. There are frankly, too many terrible examples to single any out.
Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
Sitting firmly in this 0.2% is this ”collaboration” between NYC’s finest and Animotion courtesy of Pop Chop.
