After the usual disappointment that is DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs list rolled out, the Bottom 100 DJs list fought back with their own end-of-the-year results. Now, you may look at both lists and think they look very similar. That’s because they are.
Atop the Bottom 100 DJs list are the famously horrible (OKAY DAVID GUETTA ISN’T HORRIBLE, let’s be real, you loved “Titanium,” but still, play along here) David Guetta, deadmau5, and Paris Hilton. The list goes on to name other DJ Mag contenders like Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, basically the entire DJ Mag list. Also making an appearance on the list are the funniest contenders: Me, My Penis, Your Mom, porn star Sasha Grey, and POTUS himself, Barack Obama.
The Bottom 100 DJs list is like the snarky answer to all of our prayers after seeing just how awful DJ Mag’s list was yet again. We’re fed up with fake DJs being touted as the best in the industry. It gives our favorite genre a bad name. Some like-minded EDM-lovers have retaliated in the greatest way possible: flat out saying that these artists are the worst in EDM.
The Bottom 100 DJs list results were voted on by the public between July and October 2015 and captured over 100,000 votes from over 117 countries. Now in its third year of existence, the list has gone from being one giant Internet troll to being the Razzies of EDM. No, they’re not “official,” but they matter to the people who get it.
Aside from the list itself, the ads on the side of the page deliver an extra punch with a Pet DJ Academy ad, an ad for We Are Your Friends bragging about it having the lowest box office opening ever, and an ad for Mat Zo’s publicist (Mat Zo is famous for his Twitter rants, particularly the time when he went on a 24-hour tirade about homosexuality in the animal kingdom in response to Ten Walls’ homophobic Facebook rant. What’s that? You forgot who Ten Walls is? Me too). You’d think the site couldn’t possibly get better, but it does!
The best part of the entire website is when you click the Pet DJ Academy ad, well, I’m not going to ruin the surprise, but just do it. You’ll be “rolling” on the floor with laughter 😉 in the ultimate cherry-on-top to this hilarious and snarky list.
Here are the top 10:
1. David Guetta
3. Paris Hilton
5. Professor Meowington
6. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike
8. Martin Garrix
9. Dada Life
