Deadmau5 collaborates with My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way

Posted on March 22, 2012 by

It’s kind of strange that Deadmau5 would release a collaboration with My Chemical Romance’s frontman Gerard Way considering what he recently posted on his blog.

Deadmau5 went on his tumblr account and posted a lengthy rant against big name collaborations: “There’s a perfectly valid reason why I don’t usually enjoy the idea of a ‘collaboration’ … All too often, there’s an influx of ‘big names’ that would get thrown around the label from time to time and of course, they fly off the table and out the f**kin’ door faster than they hit my desk. eg. do you want to do a track with big name X, remix huge pop act y, etc etc.” Then he said: “No. I f**king don’t. I really REALLY don’t.”

The track then appeared online this morning but neither Deadmau5 or Gerard Way have confirmed that they are on it. However, a spokesperson for My Chemical Romance told NME that Way does appear on the track.

What do you think of it?

    Every article I’ve seen that questions this collab keeps forgetting this part of deadmau5′s post: allthough you can rest assure whatever collaborations i have done in the past were the results of stuff im totally into, like Flipside, the Foo’s, Cyprus Hill, etc..

    Basically.. if he wasn’t into My Chemical Romance.. or just Gerard Way himself.. he wouldn’t have done this collab. And I’m really glad he did because it’s killer.
