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

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.’
