Nostalgia for the Early Mashup Era

We were so naive in 2001, weren't we? We could still be surprised then. We weren't yet jaded and callused by the death of western culture.

Yeah, OK, I don't know about any of that, but the best song that came out in 2001 was a fairly rudimentary mashup, by today's standards, of The Strokes and Christina Aguilera by Freelance Hellraiser. Yeah, you got yer RIAAs and yer Kleptones and yer Danger Meeces in more recent times, but "A Stroke of Genius" still hits on all cylinders.
