5 Non-Rap Acts We'd Like to See Chopped Not Slopped

Here's a confession: I've never really understood chopped and screwed music. Because of this, I've never had an opinion on it, and filed it away with Reggaeton and Texas Country in my "genres not for me" mental file folder.

Then I heard OG Ron C's take on Girl Talk's All Day and I found myself really enjoying it. Suddenly I became curious about what other non-rap chopped not slopped mixes might be out there. Luckily for me, DJ Lil Steve did a whole series of alternative and hard rock tapes awhile back featuring Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana and Nickelback, among others.

Color me surprised by how much I enjoyed the Nickelback mix in particular.

But why stop there? There's still a whole world of non-rap acts that might benefit from being slow, loud and banging. Here are five that I'd like to see the Chopstars work their magic on.
