Are Mashups the End of Music Genres?

Special | 3m 48s

Some of the best things to be found on the internet are music mashups! It's a strangely pleasing experience to listen to totally unrelated artists commingling on the same music track. Mashups are awesome because they break genre expectations, which makes us think: why have genres at all? With so much cross-pollination in music and art, does genre matter anymore?
