Sabbath/Zeppelin mashup

mashup (noun) – a mixture or fusion of disparate elements. In the case of music, a mashup is a song or composition created by blending two or more pre-recorded songs, usually by overlaying the vocal track of one song seamlessly over the instrumental track of another. [Google/Wikipedia]

I’ve never been overly fond of mash-ups, but when it works well, it can sound awesome. Like this for instance:

This mashup is hardly the fusion of disparate elements; more like the marriage of the love-children of rock/metal gods. Combining the genius of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant is well… genius.

War Pigs by Black Sabbath has always made it into someone’s Top 40 best Heavy Metal songs of all time. Guitar World actually rates it as the best Heavy Metal song, ever.

Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin also features prominently in the rankings of Best Hard Rock or Best Guitar Tracks. VH1 rated it the third best Hard Rock song of all time.

Now I’m off to look, but I doubt I’ll find anything as good as this…
