Remember mash-ups? They were huge in the mid-2000s, along with gross-out teen movies, inane chats on MSN Messenger and fake Von Dutch trucker hats. We saw Destiny’s Child go head-to-head with Justice on an amateur made track, Dizzee Rascal vs Cyndi Lauper and loads more.
But hey, mash-ups still exist in 2015 – only now they’ve been reduced to the lower echelons of 4Chan threads. For every disastrous attempt to mix Carly Rae Jepsen with Nine Inch Nails, sometimes we unearth an understated gem – just like this mash-up of Queens Of The Stone Age‘s ‘No One Knows’ and Adele‘s Bond song ‘Skyfall’.
For every person disappointed by Sam Smith’s recent Bond theme-by-numbers, revel in this alternate reality where Josh Homme could really soundtrack a 007 film. Well, if Chris Cornell can do it, there’s still hope yet.
