    I thought this was kind of interesting. Win Butler (of Arcade Fire fame) made a mashup of Jesus Walks by Kanye, and Loser by Beck.

    Turned it off after 30 seconds. Too much Kanye, not enough Beck.

    It was creatively done. It is a bit of a tough pill to swallow, given that Burton monkeyed with one of the most timeless albums in history, but he showed it respect.

    Kanye is going to be pissed that he didn't think to steal this for himself first. Bet he has legal team issue a Cease and Desist letter STAT.

    Much of the backbone of his song was sampled, so he hasn't a huge leg to stand. Also, this is a freely shared song....there will be no profit.
