I'd say no... because you had to post on here about it.

Unless you post this comment for every vinyl release that is... then you win.

Because teens listen to vinyl.

not really anything to argue about with that dude. He obvious does not like their music and for him was an easy pass vinyl wise. Was for me to and not just cause the music is ...not my thing but also its expensive.

I think Skrillex is the best band going right now.

Skrillex is still cool to hate on? Honestly, there are far worse bands/artists. imo he makes fun electronic music, dont see why he deserves so much shit.

Because he's popular. Everyone loved him, then everyone realized that everyone loved him, so they all hate him now. Welcome to the way people's brains work! I could see some people getting angry since he's so often credited as inventing dubstep (when he really just makes electronic music), but it's mostly just hate because he's popular.

I love skrillex. He hasn't put anything bad yet in my opinion.

I'm not hating on vinyl. I'm just saying it doesn't seem to be the best format to listen to EDM. Everybody talks about how it's a lot more "raw", which is sort of the exact opposite description I would assume you would want from listening to Skrillex. I'd say the crisper sound you can achieve with a less analogue music format benefits EDM. That's just my opinion though, but I'll admit if I was a bigger fan of Skrillex the collector in me would buy this in a second anyways.

Overpriced but with the purchase depending on how many are being made it can skyrocket. I remember when he put out Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites on the glow in the dark vinyl. I think they made 250 or 500 of them and they were going for $30 a piece, which for an EP is absolutely ridiculous. But when they sold out I think I saw them going for $250 bucks a piece.

i'm waiting for that gif of him with the bee.

this is overpriced, but it does look like a nice package at least.

My life is now complete.

This is pretty cool. The glow in the dark vinyl a while back was better.

Go listen to Sufjan Steven's the Age of Adz on vinyl and get back to me.
