Inspired by the strange duet of Kesha and Iggy Pop, the editors of the German branch of Rolling Stone magazine wondered what other dubious musical collaborations were.
Having rummaged through the archives, they compiled a list including Willy Nelson in collaboration with Snoop Dogg, Kylie Minogue in a duet with the frog Kermit, Frank Sinatra with Bono, and others.
