Happy Monday, all.
Here at Nerdist we are no stranger to mash-ups, but we typically see them occur in the form of fake Power Rangers intros and fan-made Captain America: Civil War trailers. However, our new Monday feature, Mashup Mondays, allows us to swan dive into the overwhelmingly vast pool of musical mashups that exist in far corners of the internet. And this week’s mashup, well–it’s interesting, and we just had to share it with you. Feast your eyes and ears on the Nine Inch Nails Vs. Taylor Swift mashup, “Shake It Off (The Perfect Drug)”.
Taylor Swift and Nine Inch Nails are two things that shouldn’t go together… at all… but we’ll be dammed if this “Shake it Off”/“The Perfect Drug” combo doesn’t get us moving.
Look, we’re not saying Trent Reznor should consider a stint in the pop game, but we are saying that if he did, we wouldn’t be against it because this video just put a huge smile on our faces. Also, we wouldn’t mind seeing Taylor take a stab at the industrial rock genre either. We bet she could pull it off. She is Taylor Swift after all.
What do you guys think of the mash-up? Would you be up for a Nine Inch Swift tour? Let us know in the comments below.
