Mashup Alert: The Beatles' "Paperback Writer" and The Knack's "My Sharona" — Video

New classic-rock mashups are created every 3.66666666677777 seconds, it seems.

In fact, here's a brand-new one, posted just last month!

It's a pretty decent mish-mash of a 1966 Beatles classic, "Paperback Writer," and the Knack's biggest hit, 1979's "My Sharona." The creator of the mashup, Go Home Productions, even made a video to go with it, and you can check it out below.

If nothing else, you get to hear Berton Averre's brilliant "My Sharona" guitar solo!

For more mashup fun, head in this general direction.
