Surely Canadians should stick together?
After all, it's a relatively small country (population speaking) and is often suffocated by its noisier Southern neighbour.
Yet at Coachella recently, deadmau5 took umbrage to Arcade Fire's onstage comments. Win Butler gave a shout out to "all the bands still playing actual instruments" during their set, prompting a furious response from the masked producer.
Tweeting to fans, deadmau5 said: "if i wanna watch real artists perform, id pick the opera before wasting a fucking minute of my life with arcade fire."
Amongst his more measured responses:
arcade fire needs to settle down. some dudes devote their lives to instruments, others to electronic composition by cpu, dafuqs yer problem?— deadmau5 (@deadmau5) April 23, 2014
Onstage at St. Louis recently, Arcade Fire performed 'Roll Over Beethoven' - written by St. Louis native Chuck Berry. The band also took a sideswipe at deadmau5, performing with the DJ's trademark mask in their visuals.
