You've probably always wondered what it would sound like if someone mashed up Justin Bieber's Baby with Slipknot's Psychosocial. It sounds like this, and it's remarkably good.

Psychosocial Baby lyrics here.

Respectfully, I don't know if I can go all the way to 'remarkably good.'

I just blended some stale Twinkies with larvae-ridden cheese. Here, taste some--it's remarkably good.

Interchangeable parts are interchangeable.

Pretty sure this is a double.

Kind of a double. Same guy and it's linked in comments there.

Yeah, I remember telling my friend back in the day how the production on nu-metal reminded me of The Backstreet Boys.

It's all interchangeable because it's coming from the same people.

Aw you guys are no fun. I liked it, although Ludacris' persistent refusal to go back in time and undo his guest spot in the Bieber song is an ongoing point of concern. But Luda + Slipknot makes sense somehow.

Well, given that I hate Bieber and Slpknot with a passion approaching the special loathing I reserve for Billy Joel, Rod Stewart and the Eagles - I'm both sad and glad it's a double.

You had me at "You've probably always wondered what it would sound like if someone mashed up Justin Bieber"

So, we need to get some computer modelling software that old Nine Inch Nails video for Happiness In Slavery?

I really liked that Korn/Taylor Swift mash-up*. I don't think this one works as well. I'm not quite sure why though.

*Possibly because I haven't been forcibly exposed to either of them previously.

Slipknot seems like the guys who get unceremoniously dispatched by Batman on his way to the heart of Scarecrow's hideout. Very B-roll. Very no-lines-in-the-script.

Having not heard one of their choruses before, I was kind of surprised. Went and checked it in the non-mashed version of their song. Whoah, it IS exactly like a Backstreet Boys chorus. Seems to match badly with both their image and the style of the verse.

I knew there was gonna be a downside to the postmodern era.

I was not completely sold on this. Then I got to the chorus and I don't think I am going to stop laughing anytime soon.

This was just what I needed to get the taste of Charlie the Unicorn 4 out of my brain.
