Taylor Swift mashed up with Nine Inch Nails is actually pretty good

Taylor Swift‘s “Shake It Off” has been perverted in many ways: It’s been slowed down, Groot’d, and athleticized. And now it’s met its soulmate, which is apparently Nine Inch Nails

Mashup god Isosine took the bleacher-stomping beat of “Shake It Off” and phased in the verses and chorus of NIN’s 1997 single “The Perfect Drug.” Not quite as terrifying as the 19-minute version of “Shake It Off,” but close. If someone could mash up “Closer” and “Blank Space,” that’d be great. 

Let’s get Swift in a David Fincher movie, STAT.
