Nine Inch Nails’ Closer mashed-up with Hall & Oates and Iron Maiden is a yacht rock masterpiece

Metal Hammer

It’s been two whole months since we last hailed the genius of internet mash-up king Bill McClintock, marvelling in the inspired wrongness of his Van Halen/Hank Williams collision Your Jumpin’ Heart.

Happily, we can report that the maverick mash-up maestro is back, and this time he’s taken Nine Inch Nails’ filthy ‘fuck’-laden fetish club staple Closer, sprinkled in a soupçon of Iron Maiden (Flight Of Icarus) and blended in Hall & Oates’ 1981 single – and fourth Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper – I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do). The result shifts Closer from BDSM dungeons to the deck of a Mediterranean-cruising schooner, which is a transformation that takes some getting used to, truthfully.
