Deadmau5 Vs Arcade Fire

(Radio.com) Oh, Deadmau5. A seemingly innocuous statement made by Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler during the band's headlining set during the first weekend of Coachella 2014 sent the Mau5-headed EDM producer into quite the Twitter tirade Wednesday night (April 23).

Butler's comment of "shout-out to all the bands still playing actual instruments at this festival" during the show was all it took for Deadmau5 to lash out at the singer and his band:

deadmau5 tweeted, "arcade fire needs to settle down. some dudes devote their lives to instruments, others to electronic composition by cpu, dafuqs yer problem?"

The "Ghosts N Stuff" producer was just getting warmed up, unleashing a string of tweets on the subject that included a pointed dig directly at Butler's band, adding the failed hashtag, "#do youevenscorebro?"

For someone who's been quite critical of his fellow EDM artists, Deadmau5 went on to say that "since some EDM is enjoyable to me, (I'll) go watch them fake it, and enjoy it more than you hate the fact that they can't play guitar." more on this story
