A mashup (also mesh, mash up, mash-up, blend, bootleg[1] [2] and bastard pop/rock) is a creative work, usually in a form of a song, created by blending two or more pre-recorded songs, usually by overlaying the vocal track of one song seamlessly over the instrumental track of another.[3] To the extent that such works are "transformative" of original content, in the United States they may find protection from copyright claims under the "fair use" doctrine of copyright law.[4]Contents1 Synonyms 2 History2.1 Precursors2.1.1 "The Flying Saucer" 2.1.2 Novelty records 2.1.3 Frank Zappa 2.1.4 John Oswald 2.1.5 Pink Project 2.1.6 Negativland 2.1.7 The Tape-beatles 2.1.8 Double Dee and Steinski 2.1.9 John Zorn 2.1.10 Evolution Control Committee2.2 Renaissance2.2.1 2 Many DJs and "A Stroke of Genie-us" 2.2.2 Software tools 2.2.3 Get Your Bootleg On, Mashuptown, Bootie, Boomselection, A.D.D 2.2.4 Bonna Music and "Enjoy the Sheket" 2.2.5 Good Copy Bad Copy
