** Issuing {{Take That}}s on DavidGuetta is practically a RunningGag (though it's less animosity towards the guy himself and more towards his style of producing - "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiT3_sQbq24&t=42m17s He's like a human-fucking-mashup!]]"). One such example of this case is in the CanadaEh trope above, though there are many, ''many'' other examples of this.

*** He has a demo on his [=SoundCloud=] titled "[[http://soundcloud.com/fuckmylife/today-im-french today, im french]]", which is his one and only outright foray into French House music (he explained in a livestream that it never was released properly because he'd get [[FanDumb accused of stealing from]] Music/DaftPunk.) The unreleased song "[[http://soundcloud.com/fuckmylife/riff6-mp3 Swinged]]" is also really European-House-ish, if not outright French House.

** An example of this where both songs have been officially released comes with [[SdrawkcabName "ebortS"]], which first appears as a moody but hard-hitting [[TrapMusic trap beat]]... and then fades in the intro to "Strobe".

** At Ultra 2014, he took a few potshots at his newest enemy, recent then-recent breakout EDM star Martin Garrix. During his performance later that night, he played an edit of his infamous "Animals" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0zWguEOxachis set to "Old McDonald Had a Farm"]].

* TropeName: ''Random Album Title''

to:

* TropeName: He's a huge fan of this, normally because he admits he doesn't usually make anything with names in mind and thus come at the last minute.
** For starters, three of his albums are named
''Random Album Title''Title'', ''> album title goes here <'', and ''W:/2016ALBUM/''. He also has the almost-example ''[[LampshadeHanging For Lack of a Better Name]]''.



** His {{Dubstep}} demos on [=SoundCloud=] have [[SarcasmMode creative titles]] such as "Dub5tepthingie2".
** His next album is titled ''>album title goes here<'', continuing the trend.

* WordSaladLyrics: The lyrics for "Professional Griefers" are this, no matter how [[{{Mondegreen}} they are heard]] when he streams it.
** Though there certainly seems to be a [[{{Dystopia}} dystopian future theme]] going on.
*** [[MagicVersusScience We got machines but the kids got Jesus]]
*** [[GodIsDead God can't hear you]]
*** [[RobotMe Watch them build a friend just like you]]
*** [[EvilOverlord Press ALT CTRL for the mixtape master]]
*** [[OrwellianEditor Photographs that I'm erasing ]]
*** [[CrushKillDestroy Self-infection, mass destruction. Programmed for the final function.]] To name a few.
* WritersCannotDoMath: ''4x4=12'', in what is a rare example of a ''musician'' failing at math. The album name is an in-joke stemming from a live-stream incident in which he was describing his setup and said "four times four, which is twelve". After [[HilarityEnsues his fans poked fun at him for it]], he decided to name his next album after the incident. Also {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in "Maths", where the only vocal line is a faint voice saying "four PLUS four PLUS four is twelve" at a few points in the song.
** While the equation makes no sense in base 10, [[GeniusBonus it does make sense in base 14.]]

** [[http://deadmau5.tumblr.com/post/19570452553/collaborations-songwritting-and-the-like According to his post about musical collaborations and such]], he likes to read short stories (since he doesn't have enough time to read full-fledged novels).
