If ever there was a time capsule of the pop music landscape of 2011, it’s DJ Earworm’s ‘United State of Pop 2011 World Go Boom’ mash up.
The DJ seamlessly and flawlessly smashed the most familiar, popular and beloved songs of 2011, ranging from Lady Gaga‘s ‘Born This Way’ to Rihanna‘s ‘We Found Love’ to Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Super Bass’ in one fell swoop. Not sure how DJ Earworm does what he does in the space of five minutes, but he managed to thread a year’s worth of tunes into a compact song. Bravo, bravo.
Of course, he engages in a little shameless self-promotion in the video, such as superimposing the phrase ‘Who the hell is DJ Earworm’ t-shirt on Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, along with having his name permanently inked on RiRi’s firm, round patoot.
Some of the songs that Earworm cycled through in this mix include Pitbull‘s ‘Give Me Everything’; Katy Perry‘s ‘Last Friday Night,’ ‘E.T.’ and ‘Firework’; Britney Spears‘ ‘Till the World Ends’; Adele‘s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ and ‘Someone Like You’; Cee Lo Green‘s ‘Forget You’; Maroon 5‘s ‘Moves Like Jagger’ with Christina Aguilera; Lupe Fiasco‘s ‘The Show Goes On’; and many more.

DJ Earworm made some changes in his song selection process 2011. In efforts to better reflect the year, he created a system that drew from the weekly charts from throughout 2011 that ensures that all the late-breaking hits, such as “We Found Love” & “Sexy and I Know It”, were included in the 2011 mix.
