Ten Reasons Rolling Stone's "25 DJs That Rule the Earth" Is Total Bullshit
Deadmau5 Is a DJ?
They placed Deadmau5 at 20, the man who said himself that he's not even a DJ, but merely a button pusher. We guess if the criteria is being a little mouthy bitch and having the loudest Tumblr of all time ... Then yes, Deadmau5 is the 20th most influential and obnoxious producer on the planet. But giving props to someone who calls himself out for sucking while snubbing people who helped open the door for him to suck is kind of a slap in the face.
Does Maya Jane Coles Rule the World?
Maya Jane Coles is 15 on this list, making her one of the most influential DJs in the world because she's been "about to blow up" for, like, five years. We're not saying she's not great, but if she really ruled the world, wouldn't she get something better than bottom billing at music festivals by now? Yes, the girl deserves a lot of props. No, she doesn't deserve to be higher on this list than Daft Punk.
