Let's Talk About This Call Me Maybe/Nine Inch Nails Mashup

Mark-Potts by Mark-Potts on Mar. 05, 2013

Mashups are a big thing in music now. Girl Talk is probably the most popular. Producer Danger Mouse got started creating mashups. Now, everyone is creating them and this right here has got to be the most f**ked up, brilliant, disturbing, genius, terrible one that's ever been created.

So here's what we have:

"Call Me Maybe" is a fun summer pop song about a girl who has developed an extreme crush on a guy and hopes that he will call her... maybe. (Or is she asking to be called "Maybe?" Commas are important, people).

"Head Like A Hole" is one of Nine Inch Nail's bigger songs, one that is an anthem of rebellion against big money, big banks, big government, and being under control from some giant, evil being or corporation.

What sick bastard thought this was a good idea? pomDeter is his SoundCloud name. He has many other mashups you should check out (Fresh In Your Arms is pretty damn phenomenal as well).

So how should we feel about this? Is this amazing? Terrible? Is it weird that it makes me feel upset yet excited at the same time? We really need to have a discussion about this mashup. And don't just make an insult. Let's be constructive in our love/hatred of this.

Now, I'm going to go listen to this for the 57th time and try to figure it out.

Does this actually qualify as a mashup? It's just "Head Like a Hole" sung w/ it's beat overtop of "Call Me Maybe." Am I just crazy thinking that mashups are a blending of the two songs, both the music and the lyrics?

You, shit head, are the douche. You don't have to be a fan to understand words. He doesn't like for people to put money first...where did he say he doesn't like for an artist to get paid?

Oh, and speaking of all this, Reznor happens to be one of the greatest examples of "giving their shit away for free." Albums, art, f-ing mash-up material...Google it, shit head. Google something like "Reznor fan mashup site"...then stfu.

My guess is that you never heard "Head Like A Hole" but you had "Call Me Maybe" on constant rotation.

Nine Inch Nails, a 90s band whose music still sounds new and ahead of its time today. Check them out.

Break Robot finds it hard to believe you never heard either one of these songs before, especially Call Me Maybe, which was played about 50 times a day in 2012 in every possible location.

When I was in 5th grade, my English teacher used this phrase of yours as an example with a picture that read, "Don't be this guy."

NIN was never a band (except when on tour). Just Michael Reznor and who he selects to play/record with him at any given time.
