MASHUP: Beastie Boys vs. Nine Inch Nails - Suckotage

You know the drill.

I had a blast with this one.  It's the NIN version of "Suck" (originally by some band called Pigface) meets the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage".  I knew "Suck" would make a good backing track for something, so I started plugging songs in and when I arrived at this one, it couldn't have been more perfect.  I especially like it because it takes one of the Beasties' rock/rap songs and makes it more straight-up rap, until in the middle everything just sort of comes together.  (You may also notice a Run DMC sample, which is in itself a reference to a different Beastie Boys song.)

The NIN samples are mainly just from the finished song, but with a little help from the remix tracks for the Pigface version.  The Beastie samples are from a certain video game.  Neither are used with any particular permission, but if it gets popular enough for that to be a problem, mission accomplished.
