Listen to epic Iron Maiden and Michael Jackson mashup

Posted by on June 19, 2017

While the internet is full of terrible mashups, it makes the good ones stand out that much more. We’ll never forget Linkin Park/”Gangam Style”, or the time Meshuggah mixed well with Space Jam. Other notable ones include Mötley Crüe and The Beatles, Hall and Oates/Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold/Katy Perry, Drake/Danzig, and let’s not forget, the legendary David Bowie/Lemmy. However, a new mashup featuring Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper,” and Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” is as seamless as it can get.

Additionally, the song mixes samples of Anthrax’s “Caught in a Mosh,” Billy Idol’s, “White Wedding” and Judas Priest’s “Painkiller.” According to YouTuber Nightmare Lyra, the combination was inspired after playing a few riffs on the ukulele, realizing “The Trooper” and “Beat It” were similar.
