Some mashups are pedestrian, most others are garbage. But occasionally, one comes along that’s just absolutely brilliant. On today’s Rock it Out Blog!, we celebrate such a piece of music — the mashup of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like a Hole” and Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe” (!) — and ask what other rock songs would you’d want to see mashed up with pop songs. Let us know down in the comment section.
Other music news headlines covered on today’s show include the acquittal of Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe, the latest additions to the Hangout Festival, new songs from M83 and The Flaming Lips, and REM’s forthcoming reissue.
