These five "Epic Rap Battles of History" are must-sees.
Darth Vader vs. Hitler
Pure evil clashed to make "ERB's" first big hit—so popular they did a second edition in Season 2.
Key Hitler lyric: "I am Adolf Hitler, Commander of the Third Reich/Little known fact: also dope on the mic"
Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney
There are probably people who chose whom to vote for based on this video. Just saying.
Key Romney lyric: "Call me a vicious businessman because I'm stealing this race/I'll go Bain Capital on your donkey ass: restructure your face"
Moses vs. Santa Claus
Snoop Dogg as Moses? The 11th Commandizzle says you should watch.
Key Moses lyric: "So much drama in the Israe-L.B.C./It's kinda hard talking directly to the G-O-single D"
Mozart vs. Skrillex
Skrillex himself dropped by for a live performance of this essential musical debate during YouTube Comedy Week.
Key Mozart lyric: "Oh yes I've heard that EP and I've transcribed it here/Tell me what comes after the 68th measure of diarrhea?"
Dr. Seuss vs. Shakespeare
Two of literature's greatest rhymers pit iambic pentameter against the Cat in the Hat.
Key Shakespeare lyric: "I'll put a slug between your shoulder blades/Then ask 'what light through yonder poser breaks?'"
