Korn meets ‘The Lion King’ with this ridiculous mashup of hit songs
We can't wait for what's next.October 17, 2019
We never would have seen this coming, but here it is.
Mashups can be made from pretty much anything nowadays. There’s Post Malone x Hawthorne Heights, Taylor Swift x Fall Out Boy and many, many more. It’s pick your poison now, and today we choose Korn x The Lion King. Listen below.
Isn’t it incredible? It’s haunting and uplifting. It’s brooding and outspoken. It is the perfect oxymoron of a song.
Youtuber William Maranci created this masterpiece but it isn’t the only work of art this modern-day Michaelangelo created. He also has a Foster The People and Drowning Pool mashup which he says is “dedicated to everyone named Kyle.” Well, Kyles of the world, enjoy your Monster Energy Drinks while watching the mashup below.
Both songs are a great party trick when sitting around with your friends doing nothing.

TwentyNineScene has been good to us, blessing us with the return of Scary Kids Scaring Kids and Go Radio. We’ve undergone an emo revival and proven that it was never really dead thanks to Matt Cutshall’s “felt emo might delete” videos. Now, our worlds are colliding as one YouTuber imagines what it would be like to toss Post Malone in an emo band.
YouTuber Call It Clarity has created a mashup that none of us knew we needed.
Taking Post Malone’s “I Fall Apart” and Hawthorne Heights’ “Ohio Is For Lovers,” the YouTuber created a track that sounds like it could be an actual song.
While we all know Posty was in a metal band (who covered Asking Alexandria) and once auditioned for Crown The Empire, this genre gives his vocals a new spin. If you’ve ever wondered what it would sound like if Posty was in an emo band instead, here’s your answer.
The mashup actually makes more sense than you’d think as even Hawthorne Heights themselves once said Posty would be a perfect fit for one of their tracks. Back in 2017, the band’s account reached out to the rapper with a proposition.
“Yo @PostMalone, We have a song that you would be perfect on,” they tweeted. “Could help people, and be a positive impact during dark times. Let’s go.”

While this isn’t that track and just a fun Internet mashup, Hawthorne Heights love of the rapper continued. In 2018, HH frontman JT Woodruff gave his own take on the now sampled Posty track.
