Two is Always Better than One: 20 Awesome Pop-Culture Mashup T-Shirt Designs

How would I define “mashup?” To me, a mashup is created by taking two or more great things and combining them into one awesome thing!

The word “mashup” is a term that has only gained mainstream popularity in the last decade or so. It is probably most well-known as a music term, describing songs that are comprised only from parts of other songs. These various parts of other songs are “mashed-up” to create an entirely new song. This practice has now extended well beyond just the realm of music, however, into graphic design.

Mashup t-shirts featuring a combination of two or more references to popular culture are showing up everywhere–especially in the “geek” culture. These unique t-shirts can be an awesome way to show off your love for multiple movies, television shows, or video games at the same time. Below, I’ve compiled a list of some my favorite pop-culture mashup t-shirt designs.
