Hell & Hate
February 3, 2010 12:44 PM   Subscribe

More Beatles remix/mashup delirium. Hell! (website, zipped download). Hate (website, multiupload link). Mutation (website). The Beastles & Let It Beast (website, multiupload links). The Act You've Known For All These Years (website). And the granddaddy of them all, The Grey Album. (overview, multiupload link)

Download links found in some of the websites. [And apparently some of the torrent links are dead -- I tried to include working links when I found the website ones to be non-functioning.]

Some of these albums have been featured previously.

I don't know if any of the Beatles were/are asexual.

What about Enter The Magical Mystery Chambers?

Probably my favorite since the grey album.

I am a friend of a friend of at least 3 of the people in these links.

What is wrong with me?

Surprised this didn't get a mention...

The Beatles Never Broke Up

Absurd story on site about how they came into being as well but it's basically a mashup of post-Beatles stuff made to sound as if the band was still playing together.

Not sure that the Grey Album can outdo the Linkin Park/Jay-Z mashup album. I dislike "Encore" and "Numb" separately, but "Numb/Encore" is a brilliant song.

I'm also a fan of Jay Zeezer, a mashup of Hova (and other hip hop artists) and Weezer. The best of these are Yeah in the Sun and Surf Wax Off Your Shoulder.

The Mutation one is excellent (I'm in awe of the guy's technical skill, and I love being able to pick out bits of tracks that I recognise as they poke their heads into the new and bizarre concoction that's been created), but I didn't even try the Hell and Hate ones, solely because of the frankly painful puns in the track titles. I mean, really, "Got To Get You Under My Knife"?

(On preview: to continue the chain, the Linkin Park/Britney Spears mashup "Toxic Faint" massively improves both songs.)

I wish there was a way to buy people shots of rare, ludicrously expensive liquor through Metafilter, because both hippybear and brocklanders deserve it.

Pete Best, Stu Sutcliffe, and Billy Preston?

Don't want to go scouring the illegal internets from work, so I can't tell if that Grey Album is the Jay Z one, or the Beatallica one.

Otherwise, there's Beatallica (Beatles + Metallica), they had two albums, and got as far as opening for Dream Theater before they got shut down by one of the rights owners (can't remember who). Again, don't want to go searching for links from work, but Google it, sheeple!

My favorite Jay Z mashup album, and really my favorite mashup album in general, is The Slack Album (Jay Z's Black Album + Pavement's Slanted and Enchanted). It helps if you really like Pavement, but pretty much every track is great and Our First Singer can only be explained by some sort of cosmic psychic connection between Jay Z and Stephen Malkmus.

Would you rather the kids be on your lawn, or making Beatles mashups?

You should, actually. They are the reason for this post, overall, as the clever nature of the mashups on those two albums got me into digging around a bit more, and I decided to just do a consolidated post of much of what I found. FWIW, the tracks themselves don't contain bad puns at all -- just the titles.

There is no Beatles mashup but Wu Tang vs. Beatles - Enter The Magical Mystery Chambers. It's one of the better mashups I've heard period.

Not a mashup, but hell and hate are implied: Laibach's version of 'Let it Be'.

I have a fondness for their spin on 'I Dig a Pony'.

Reminds me that the other day I found the Beatles mashup that no one has been waiting for.

My fave fab mashup is Revolved. Some surprisingly effective non-hip hop connections. "You Only Live Tomorrow" kills.

The Residents beat beat beatle us all to the punchbowl, especially in their 1977 offering:

Now you kids gwan and git off my lawn.

I've collected a few of these mashups over the years. Here's one called The Beachles. Not as cool as the Beastles, but still, it's a pretty interesting idea to make a "Sgt. Pet's Sounds". (link is a direct download, not a webpage)

...which seems sadly to have vanished into the netherworld of legal threats and dead torrents.

Oh! Nevermind! Located at archive.org!

And also its sequel Cracked Pepper -- probably suffers from the same dead links, although maybe the torrent is still alive?
