This month has truly birthed a slew of unlikely mash-ups, though this is perhaps the most contradictory of them all. YouTuber Bill McClintock has, for some reason, merged the realms of Slipknot and Spice Girls together.
We thought that the only thing that these two acts would share is that vintage stores fleece us all by overcharging for their 90s merch apparel. However, this unlikely marriage between the two decade-defining acts surprisingly works quite well.
The mashup interpolates Slipknot’s All Hope Is Gone track ‘Sulphur’ with Spice Girls iconic track ‘Wannabe’. We don’t want to speak too soon but we think that ‘slam your body down and “zigazig ah” might be the defining mosh pit call to arms. You can witness the mashup in all of its glory below.

In related news, YouTuber Ten Second Songs — real name Anthony Vincent— recently unleashed a marvellous creation, a performance of Slipknot classic ‘Psychosocial’ reimagined in a whopping 25 musical styles.
The cover includes his best impersonation of acts such as Hanson, Twenty One Pilots, Lil Nas X, The Cure, a broken Gameboy and”every girl with a ukulele (that loves Billie Eilish).” It’s a piping hot serving of content
Earlier this week, another glorious mashup emerged that saw Korn and The Lion King collide. One bonafide genius had the ingenuity to mash up seminal nü-metal anthem ‘Freak On a Leash’ and The Lion King classic ‘Circle of Life’.The artistry on display in the video truly takes a giant dump on Disney’s 2019 reworking of the film.
