Whether you think that mash-ups are hilarious paeans to short attention-spanned music fans or the Devil out to destroy your favorite songs and our entire culture in the process, they are pretty damn fun to listen to. Obviously their quality varies wildly since they are "homemade" and completely illegal.
I'm interested to know if anyone has links or downloads to some good ones I have yet to hear. Here are some of my favorites:
"American Edit" by Dean Gray - a mash-up of the entire Green Day album, "American Idiot". Far more hits that misses, there are some real gems here. Ashanti's Letterbomb is my fave, but Novocaine Rhapsody is brilliant, as is Boulevard of Broken Songs. The title song is mixed quality, but the "Tears of a Clown" part is like musical crack. Really fun, well-produced stuff.
"Raiding the 20th Century" by DJ Food. A brilliant history lesson (it's actually an hour-long BBC radio doc) with interesting spoken parts mixed in, DJ-style, with amazing mash-ups. The highlight for me is at around 16 minutes, the Destiny's Child/Nirvana mash. Overall, the first 18 minutes or so are totally amazing. DJ Food (aka Coldcut) is a DJ collective that's been around for years and they knows them some music and turntable skills.
These Christmas mash-ups are a little late, but there's some fun stuff mixed in with some junk. the "Christmas Massacre of Charlie Brown" is great.
I don't have a link for it, but there's another series of songs worth checking out that are Philip Glass's music mashed to hip-hop artists. It's also hit and miss, but the Beastie Boys "Einstein on the Beast" is awesome.

Indie 103.1 has a "mash-up of the day" People upload their songs and listeners vote for their favorites
Some are good, some are painful...
There was one on there for awhile that I really liked so I downloaded it
Beatles Vs. NIN
It's "Come Together" mixed with "F*&% you like an Animal"

My favorite is not silly at all, but quite lovely. It's a mash up of Elvis Presley's "Crying in the Chapel" and an early version of the Wailers' "Satisfy My Soul". Unfortunately, my version has a digital flaw in the middle of it, but it's still listenable. It comes from a UK bootleg 45, that I'd love to track down one day. There's a sample here. Other pretty interesting ones I have are 9 tracks by the Beastles, Beatles vs. Beastie Boys.
There's some cool stuff here that's downloadable. I'm especially fond of this dude's Xmas mixes.

Thanks, guys. This link just appeared on Boingboing today, and due to the nature of the link, will probably be dead soon:

the best of bootie has some great tracks, thanks for the tip off
I love these things, always catching you out
I find myself keep listening to tracks that in their original form I'd not give pod room
Anyone found done exotica mashups?
Not exactly mashups but
