Bob Marley vs. Green Day: Get Up, Hitch A Ride, 2012
Y'know back in the last decade, the mash-up seemd like a charming novelty. Then, gradually, the internet seemed to turn into one giant mash-up factory. This particular musical mash-up, by G3RSt, skillfully intersects Bob Marley's dorm-reggae standard "Get Up, Stand Up" with Green Day's punky blues-rock hit, "Hitchin' A Ride". By combining a song that you grew tired of years ago with a song many people never warmed to in the first place, this creation both creates a fascinating new thing and makes you reconsider the old things. Good work, internet.
MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
