Listen to a Mash-Up of Nine Inch Nails’ ‘The Perfect Drug’ + Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’

Subscribe to on

One intrepid YouTube user under the name Lsosine has crafted an unlikely mash-up between two seemingly at odds songs: Nine Inch Nails’ ‘The Perfect Drug’ and Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off.’ And surprisingly, Lsosine manages to make it work – check out the results above.

Swift’s massive ‘1989’ hit largely serves as the backdrop for Trent Reznor’s menacing vocals from NIN’s 1997 track, which appeared on the soundtrack for David Lynch’s ‘Lost Highway.’ And if you thought the two songs couldn’t be any more disparate, Lsosine even combines footage from both single’s music videos, which are equally contrasting.

This isn’t Lsosine’s first time making improbable mash-ups, the YouTube user’s page also features ‘Psychosocial Baby,’ a conglomeration of Slipknot’s ‘Psychosocial’ and Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby.’

To cleanse your palette, here’s the original version of ‘The Perfect Drug':
