Some genius out there (with perhaps too much time on their hands) decided it would be a good idea to create a mashup of Limp Bizkit’s signature song ‘Break Stuff’ with, obviously, the theme song from ‘Seinfeld.’ The result? Check it out inside!
Thanks to someone who has a weirdly keen ear, we have been blessed with what might be the oddest mashup of all time– and yet it totally works! Master masher upper, JJ P, took the liberty of swapping out the background track of Limp Bizkit‘s “Break Stuff” for the bouncy Seinfeld theme song music to create a brand new creation. Kramer would approve!
Limp Bizkit & ‘Seinfeld’ Theme Song Mashup
I mean, who doesn’t think of Limp Bizkit when they hear the theme song to the classic 90s sitcom Seinfeld?
Well, probably most people. However, that’s clearly been their loss. Replacing the guitar stylings of Wes Boland, the percussion of John Otto, the bass skills of Sam Rivers and the turntable sounds of DJ Lethal in the classic song “Break Stuff” with just the music of the Seinfeld intro sounds like a bizarre and probably terrible idea.
And yet? It weirdly works! Listen for yourself!
Weird Enough To Work
In the mashup, the only remaining aspect of the original “Break Stuff” is the (all important) vocals of Fred Durst. The combination of the remaining vocals with the silly-sounding theme song is a very funny combination, actually.
“Break Stuff” is about basically just that: breaking stuff. It’s pretty much purely an outpouring of aggression. Seinfeld, on the other hand, was one of the last classic sitcoms about nothing other than a group of people discussing the minutiae of every day life. In other words, basically the least aggressive art form ever.
Together though, the two pieces come form something so strange, it totally works.
What do you think of the mashup?
