13 Best deadmau5 Trolls- So Far

Taking on everyone from Skrillex to Ricardo Villalobos, deadmau5 is no stranger to some mid-grade EDM beef.


Joel Zimmerman - AKA deadmau5 has always been known to be the troll commander of Twitter - sometimes the posts are pure entertainment... 

Other times Deadmau5's troll moves are just plane mean. 

While we'll never be sure what the psychological reasons are behind the Mau5's petty beefs are, we know that they aren't going to be ending any time soon. I mean... even his management couldn't keep him off the keyboard. 

We all have our addictions I suppose...

Joel's most recent Twitter spat with Trance heavyweight Armin van Buuren brought on an internal war between Trance Music vs Mau5y things at Magnetic HQ -- if you missed that, you're missing out (don't worry, you can check it out HERE)

It also gave us this awesome idea - to check out the 13 best beefs so far. 

These are not to be taken too seriously. If you need a life support machine to get you through these next few posts - go ahead and check out Justin Bieber's Twitter page, he always has room for emotionally unstable fans.


01. Remember when Arcade Fire made a special shout-out to the EDM community? Mau5 does.

10. Tiesto and Mau5 have this ongoing love-troll relationship, sometimes it's on - other days it's off. This, however was a legit stab.
