Breaking Down the 100 Greatest Mash-Up's of All Time


When brainstorming list to make part of my Greatest of the 00’s series, I planned on making a Mash-Up list, but since I did not have many that predated the decade, I thought I would just wait until I was done with my 00’s list and make a list of The Greatest Mash-Up’s of All Time instead (although only one mash up from the 90’s ended up making my list). I did make the cut off 2010, so no new mash up’s I found this year were eligible for the list. Here is a breakdown of the list by the numbers.

Mash-Up Artists with Multiple Songs
Aggro1 – 7
Go Home Production - 6
DJ BC – 5
Norwegian Recycling - 5
DJ Topcat – 4
DJ Schmolli – 4
Party Ben - 4
DJ Erb – 3
Pheugoo - 3
Soulwax – 3
Voicedude - 3
A Plus D – 2
Danger Mouse - 2
DJ Earworm – 2
DJ Lobsterdust – 2
Lock3down – 2
Mashup Germany – 2
Team9 – 2

Artists with Most Songs Mashed
Snoop Dogg – 7
AC/DC – 4
Beastie Boys - 4
Dr. Dre – 4
Kelly Clarkson - 4
Led Zeppelin – 4
Alicia Keys - 3
The Beatles – 3
Coldplay - 3
Destiny's Child – 3
Jay-Z – 3
Johnny Cash – 3
Kings of Leon - 3
M.I.A. – 3
Nas – 3
Prince – 3
Queen – 3
Rihanna - 3

It should be noted that Danger Mouse was the only artist to appear on the list as both a mash up artist and as someone whose song got mashed as part of Gnarls Barkley.

Mash-Up’s by Year (Note some mash-up’s are listed by the date I found them, not when they were released due to hard to find info)
1999 – 1
2000 – 2
2002 – 2
2003 – 1
2004 – 8
2005 – 14
2006 – 12
2007 – 21
2008 – 13
2009 – 12
2010 - 14
