Disney vigorously protects its trademark rights, and we oppose Mr. Zimmerman's attempt to register a logo that is nearly identical to our trademarks for his commercial exploitation. Our opposition is not about the use of the Deadmau5 costume. The music was appropriately licensed, and there is no merit to his statement.
Deadmau5 seemed to take issue with Arcade Fire throwing a few jabs EDM's way the past few weeks. During their Coachella set, Win Butler shouted out "to all the bands playing instruments this weekend" -- and the replies via Twitter from Deadmau5 range from, "arcade fire needs to settle down. some dudes devote their lives to instruments, others to electronic composition by cpu, dafuqs yer problem?" to "inb4 some fucking hipster throws a hackeysack at me." This is way cooler than when I get called out by disgraced band members on my Facebook page.
Do I hear a possible Deadmau5 and Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) collaboration? A leaked version of the song "Professional Griefers" has been ripped from the livestream Deadmau5 did yesterday, during which he was working on editing/mixing vocals for the track. The vocals sure do sound a lot like Gerard. Take a listen in the replies, what do you think?
