Slipshack Is The Slipknot/B‑52’s Mashup Of Your Nightmares
We know what you’re all thinking: there couldn’t possibly be a better mashup than Play That Funky Music Rammstein, the Rammstein/Wild Cherry crossbreed we showed you a couple of weeks ago. But that was before you heard Slipshack, a new mashup of Slipknot’s Before I Forget and the B‑52’s’ Love Shack that will haunt your dreams.
Created by YouTuber Bill McClintock in an apparent attempt to rip a hole in spacetime and kill us all, Slipshack shows just how well Slipknot’s Before I Forget fits in the synth- and bongo-heavy backing music of Love Shack. Not only that, but there’s a Zakk Wylde solo thrown in for good measure, because why not, you’re already listening to whatever this is — you might as well go totally insane. It’s truly at the “My end, it justifies my means…” moment where the listener wonders what exactly is wrong with the world.

Admit it, you loved it.
