DJ Earworm always does a United State of Pop mix at the end of the year–a mash-up of the 25 most popular songs of the year–that in the past have varied from mildly amusing to annoying as fuck, which is of course very dependent on how good the most popular songs of the year were. 2011 is probably the first year that I felt everything from the lyrical content to the beats to the video editing have fit together surprisingly well. I really loved his mix for this year. Not only does the mix have a theme (most of the songs have an “End of the World/things blowing up” vibe to them) but the beats he picked are some of my favorites, and on its own, if you didn’t already know that this was a mash-up, this is just a really fun song. If you like the song too, go to the YouTube page where there’s a link to download the song for free.
