‘Psybrid Theory’ is the Linkin Park and Psy mashup no one needed to hear

One question: Why?
We get it. We know that Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory is one of the best-selling albums of the, oh, last decade or so. We know that Psy’s “Gangnam Style” is the most-watched YouTube video of all-time—and yes, the South Korean singer’s channel has surpassed 3 billion (!!!) views.
But the question still remains: Why? Why did someone even create this, a mashup of K-pop and nü metal?
We don’t have the answers. But we’ll admit this much—Psybrid Theory, while completely unnecessary, sounds downright ludicrous, and we’ll admit that it’s arresting (in only the way that only a bland of drop-D guitars and Hangul can be).
