Here's the Kanye West-Marilyn Manson Mashup We've All Been Waiting For

"Black Skinhead" finally meets "The Beautiful People," thanks to Girl Talk

Dan Reilly

Before Kanye West released the longer-than-the-Bible liner notes to Yeezus, many speculated that the beat for "Black Skinhead" was a sample of Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People." They were wrong.

Perhaps Girl Talk felt the need to imagine an alternate universe where that was actually true, or perhaps he just gets inspiration by reading music blogs. Either way, he finally made the combo happen last week at a show in North Carolina, putting Manson's raspy vocals over Kanye's beat, and it's about as seamless as you'd expect.

Check it out above, then compare it to the mashup of "Black Skinhead" and Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus." And as a bonus, listen to his mix of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" with Michael Jackson's "Remember the Time" below.
