If you're referring to the Endless Mine part, I guess it's a weird thing to include, but I'm not going to look such a neat bit bit of fan pandering in the mouth. My only complaint in general would be that it's debateable whether the remix as a whole is in line with the Classic musical style, and vocoding is bad.
Not the concept of a remix per se, simply this remix. I do not think that it adds anything to the song; rather it only subtracts from it. The original Escape from the City was a light, upbeat song promising adventure and fun; this remix however robs it of any feel or identity if ever had. They added generic percussion, guitar riffs, and autotuning effects turning the track into a completely interchangeable and expressionless pile of sounds.
As such, the remix is pointless because it neither adds to the song, nor gives it a different, unique spin—it just makes it worse.
