Yesterday on Twitter, a discussion broke out via a great deal of DJ’s concerning today’s EDM scene based on a fairly extensive rant from The Chainsmokers. The guys took to their Twitter to discuss the reactions they received when the video of their appearance on American Idol went live on YouTube.

The guys rant was focused on their discussion of doing what they love and how this led to their viral rise to fame. They also breached the topic of “selling out” and tried to define what it means as well. We compiled some of the best tweets featuringLaidback LukeEats EverythingCongorockPorter RobinsonRob Swire and of course deadmau5. Check out some of the ones we’ve compiled:

So here’s the tweet sparked off the entire rant…
