Think deadmau5 Went In On Martin Garrix? Look At What Rick James Said About Prince!

deadmau5 maybe the king of twitter beefs in EDM culture, but it turns out spats between musicians are really nothing new- especially when it comes to genre on genre hate.  Just check out these "30 Harshest Musician-on-Musician Insults in History" we found on Flavorwire.

We've selected 10, but you can read the full list here. All of the sudden Mister Mau5 looks pretty well restrained!

1. Kurt Cobain on Guns N’ Roses
“They’re really talentless people, and they write crap music, and they’re the most popular rock band on the earth right now. I can’t believe it.”

2. Nick Cave on Red Hot Chili Peppers
“I’m forever near a stereo saying, ‘What the fuck is this garbage?’ And the answer is always the Red Hot Chili Peppers.”

3. Noel Gallagher on Kaiser Chiefs
“They play dress-up and sit on top of an apex of meaninglessness. They don’t mean anything to anybody apart from their fucking ugly girlfriends.”

4. Alan McGee on Coldplay
“Coldplay are the dictionary definition of corporate rock. The singer is about as weird as Phil Collins. They are career rock personified. EMI should’ve signed Otis The Aadvark instead. At least he only sucks his thumb rather than corporate cock.”

5. Elvis Costello on Morrissey
“Morrissey writes wonderful song titles, but sadly he often forgets to write the song.”

6. Noel Gallagher on Jack White
“He looks like Zorro on doughnuts.”

7. Rick James on Prince
“A little short ego-ed fucker who I had a feeling didn’t like people of his own race and wanted to be white and taller.”

8. Robert Smith on Morrissey
“If Morrissey says not to eat meat, then I’ll eat meat — that’s how much I hate Morrissey.”

9. Morrissey on Bob Geldof
“Bob Geldof is a nauseating character. Band Aid was the most self-righteous platform ever in the history of popular music.”

10. Boy George On Madonna
“A vile, hideous human being with no redeeming qualities.
