Fugazi and the Wu-Tang Clan may hail from two very different genres – punk rock and hip-hop, respectively – but they're both among the most widely respected and thoroughly uncompromising acts of the Nineties. The geniuses behind the Wugazi project have found a way to merge the surreal, head-spinning lyricism of the Wu with the intense rhythms of Fugazi, resulting in a series of seamless mash-ups that rise above the status of mere novelty. In this exclusive preview from Wugazi's first mixtape 13 Chambers – which will be available for free tomorrow on Wugazi.com – producers Cecil Otter and Swiss Andy blend Ghostface Killah and Ne-Yo's 2006 single "Back Like That" with the Washington, D.C. quartet's "Slo Crostic," a cut from the soundtrack to Jem Cohen's Fugazi documentary Instrument.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
