“Nirvana vs. Rick Astley” – Never Gonna Give Your Teen Spirit Up

Brilliant mashup by DJ Morgoth.

Riffs similar to that of Smells Like Teen Spirit can be heard in a lot of songs e.g. Louie Louie, More Than A Feeling, 3’s & 7’s. Catchy.

EDIT: The original video link is dead, this one works as of 2010-02-24.

Fine Young Cannibals – She Drives Me Crazy (Live performance at 1990 Grammy Awards)

I shun radio because of this medium’s way of overplaying specific songs. Thanks to this I’m able to actually enjoy old hits like this one for what they are: really good, catchy music. Also: childhood memories.
