We Will Rock You In Da Club

I know, I know, mashups are so 2002. But ever since I heard "The Best Bootlegs in the World Ever", which featured The Freelance Hellraiser's masterful blending of Christina Aguilera and the Strokes in "A Stroke of Genius", I couldn't get enough.

The latest to tickle my ear comes via the great Stereogum: "Q-Unit", an unholy music alliance between 50 Cent and Queen.

"Bohemian Wanksta"?! Sold!

For an exhaustive aural history of mashups, listen to "Raiding the 20th Century", a 70mb MP3 by DJ Food that seamlessly cobbles together the best tracks to come out of the mashup phenomenon. Keep an ear out for "A Stroke of Genius" in part 5.

Other notable mashups:

Kelis vs. C&C Music Factory - "Gonna Make You Sweat to Milkshake" (sample)

Gwen Stefani vs. The Clash - "Radio Hollaback"

Carly Simon vs. Everything But the Girl - "You're So Missing" by DJ Reset
