Nine Inch Nails and Carly Rae Jepsen to many, are on complete opposite ends of the musical spectrum. For producer pomDeter though, the two seemed like a natural pairing. After being inspired by a Reddit user who had the two cuts stuck in his head (under the working title "really bad Friday Night", according to Rolling Stone), the mash-up artist took Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like A Hole" and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe", combining them into three minutes of bubblegum angst madness.

In other Nine Inch Nails news_backup, Trent Reznor has recently revealed that his reformed line-up of the band will feature King Crimson's Adrian Belew:
"I was working with Adrian Belew [of King Crimson] on some musical ideas, which led to some discussion on performing, which led to some beard-scratching, which (many steps later) led to the decision to re-think the idea of what Nine Inch Nails could be, and the idea of playing a show."
Reznor also noted that the band was "reinventing itself from scratch," although it is unlikely, even on the strength of pomDeter's mash-up, that Carly Ray Jepsen will be getting involved with the new NIN.
