Listen: Nine Inch Nails Get Mashed-Up With Carly Rae Jepsen


Here’s a little ditty that I think all y’all should hear because I think you might enjoy it as much as I do. There is a new mash-up going around where an industrious person combined the Nine Inch Nails song Head Like A Hole with Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe … the result is a new song titled Call Me A Hole. Now, mashing-up these two songs may not sound like the best idea … until you hear it … then you realize that it’s the best idea ever known to man. Click below, take a listen and fall in lurve.

It’s pretty remarkable how well these songs go together … maybe Carly Rae can open up for NIN when they go on tour later this year, HMMMM? The guy who created this mash-up, pomDeter, wants it known that the original idea for the song came from a reddit user named carly_ray_reznor:

I have this song in my head, and it cannot be exorcised until I hear it: Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepson vs. Head Like a Hole – NIN. I call it “really bad Friday night” Can one of you please make this happen! “…hey, I just met you … BOW DOWN BEFORE THE ONE YOU SERVE …”

Kudos to the visionary and to the artist to made the vision a reality. Now, fess up, y’all … this mash-up is pretty dope, right?

    That’s about as wrong as wrong gets. So wrong, it return circles from behind and smacks you in the back of the head so hard you end up thinking it’s right.
