Music blog Cokemachineglow just posted a covers podcast, which includes The Hood Internet mashin' up Huey's "Pop, Lock & Drop It (Remix)" (feat. Bow Wow & T-Pain) into a song called "Poppin' Lockin' & Droppin' in O Seven."
The song features the vocals from Huey's hit single atop snippets of songs from the following artists: The White Stripes, LCD Soundsystem, Justice, Yeasayer, Andrew Bird, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Simian Mobile Disco, Modest Mouse, Chromatics, Feist, Jens Lekman, Spoon, Battles, Calvin Harris, Air, Professor Murder, Les Savy Fav, Digitalism, Aesop Rock, Huey, Shop Boyz, and Soulja Boy.
(By the way, if you heard the sound of something exploding, that was just the head of Brooke Foster, after she saw that the first song on the podcast is by the Lackthereof (a.k.a. Danny Seim from Menomena) covering the National's "Fake Empire." Brooke wrote about both bands in her year-end wrap-up, which is now online.)

My personal favorites -- besides the Photoshopped photos for every post, which are sometimes utterly hilarious -- include:
