Meet Captain Cuts, the L.A. guys who mashed up Paramore and Selena Gomez

Fetty Wap and Blink-182. Drake and Say Anything. Justin Bieber and Fall Out Boy.

At a moment when the Internet has hastened the erosion of traditional genre lines, the idea of a pop idol or a rapper teaming with an emo band isn't as hard to imagine as it once might have been. But just because something can be envisioned doesn't mean someone has actually done it — at least in real life.
