Kesha Meets Metal in Original ‘Die Young’ Mash Up [VIDEO]
Raise your devil horns in the air and rock out to this awesome metal mix.
While perusing my news feed on Facebook earlier today, I noticed a friend of mine shared a video he found of a Bluegrass mash up of Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode” created by YouTube user, Andy Rehfeldt. I chose not to share that video here because, while there is no cursing, it uses old concert footage which contains a young lady in the front row lifting her shirt and showing Dre and Snoop Dogg where babies feed.
After watching that entertaining little ditty, I dug a bit deeper into Rehfeldt’s page and discovered this isn’t his first foray into combining popular songs with music that is the polar opposite of the original. There’s a jazz-metal version of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”, a down-tuned, death metal rendition of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” complete with Carly’s vocals being replaced with a guttural growl that may very well be Satan himself, and a polka version of Drake’s “Best I Ever Had”.
So who is Andy Rehfeldt? He’s a Los Angeles based musician who creates this videos just for fun according to his official website. Other than the vocals, all the music is performed by Andy. He then finds a video of whoever he’s mashing (usually a concert or TV performance) and sync’s his song to it. His YouTube account currently has 119 videos he’s created over the last three years.
I chose the Kesha “Die Young” metal-mix for a couple of reasons. 1) I love metal music. 2) There’s no cursing in this song, which means it’s safe for the kids to see if they happen to stumble across it, and 3) it’s really, REALLY well done! Check out for yourself.
As an added bonus, here’s Andy’s Country/Metal/Bossanova mix of Rihanna’s “Only Girl in the World”.
