Actually, this isn’t bad.
It’s not unusual to notice similarities between songs — after all, there’s only so many chord arrangements and melodies in the world. (This is especially true for country music, it seems.) That being said, I don’t know that I’d ever find common ground between smiley pop machine Taylor Swift and brooding industrial rockers Nine Inch Nails. But, lo and behold, this left-field mashup of Swift’s “Shake It Off” and NIN’s “The Perfect Drug” has done just that.
Is it creepy? Yes. Does it all work? Eerily so (even the video, too!). Will hipster babies enjoy it? Probably.
