Mashup: Foo Fighters vs Beastie Boys – “Everlong, Holmes”

bb3
The madman behind The Cure/Commodores mashup Daniel Barassi (BRAT Productions) is at it again, this time around he has chosen “Everlong” by The Foo Fighters (a sacred song in the eyes of most FF fans) and the funky instrumental “Groove Holmes” by The Beastie Boys; mashed together they’ve created a groovy little love song that’s accompanied by the use of scenes from the film “The Naked Gun 2 1/2” starring the late great Leslie Nielsen, check it out below.

Foo Fighters – “Everlong” (Acapella) original version found on ‘The Colour And The Shape’ album.
Beastie Boys – “Groove Holmes” (Re-Edited Album Version) original version on the ‘Check Your Head’ album.
