As a song about a soldier whose arms and legs have been blown off by a landmine, Metallica's 1988 classic One is unlikely to appear on any disco compilations anytime soon.

It has, however, been the subject of a brilliantly ludicrous mash-up by mysterious YouTuber YepImTheToaster, who's taken One and welded it joyously to Gloria Gaynor's 1978 disco hit I Will Survive.

The end results are fantastically ridiculous, as James Hetfield's harrowing pleas for a blessed departure from life are allied to a song that's all about the opposite.

"It's like eating sweet chocolate porridge with crispy salted anchovies," says commenter Pep David, while Haole In Paradise adds, "This is the greatest moment in the history of music. It is magnificent."
