Only if you own copyright to every sound you "mashup"

To expand on this, if you do mashups of songs found on Newgrounds, that's totally fine as long as you get consent from and credit the artists who made the songs you use.

Copyrighted songs are not allowed, so Newgrounds-sourced music is your best bet.

Mashing up two songs that aren't yours to begin wtih completely lacks originality.

Admittedly, it is fun when you lack the skills to produce original tracks.

nah, a good mashup takes two (or more) tracks you would never associate with one another and puts them together in a way that brings the best out of each of them. incidentally it's really hard to do well!
