    Isn't it abusing power making a day for a DJ?
    There are things much more important that would deserve a day imho...

    I don't like that kind of music, nor does everyone like it...
    He's not a hero or some sort of amazing genius that invented something useful for the world... So... Pretty stupid to name a day after someone like that. =S

    I can think of 6.5 billion people who don't deserve a day, and deadmau5 isn't one of them.

    RIGHT ON!!!!

    Deadmau5 isn't a DJ. He hates that term. Seriously. He hates DJs.

    Luckily he's hardly played over here, not even on the horrific mainstream stations.

    So? He brings in a ton of revenue for the city of Las Vegas, obviously in our world today that's a little important. Not only that but I'm sure almost NOBODY will remember this other than his fans...maybe. Whats the harm in having a day for someone no one is going to remember? It's like Columbus day, when the fuck is that? NOBODY EVEN KNOWS WITHOUT LOOKING AT A CALENDAR.

    The only deadmau5 song that I enjoyed was Ghosts n Stuff. Apart from that, everything else I heard from him was sub-par.

    He is known for being an asshole, though.

    Pretty much this. Ghosts n Stuff is pretty nice, mainly due to the vocals though.

    Also, an add-on to my previous comment...This is obviously just to make more and more money. He's not a hero, he's not a musical revolutionary (I don't see a John Lennon day, or an Elvis Presley day, etc.), and he certainly doesn't need his own day, whether or not it's exclusive to Las Vegas.

    Don't compare what Columbus did to a producer or whatever. -.-
    And I still think it's stupid, anyways, USA isn't my country to begin with, so I dun care. =3

    I didn't compare the two? I said it's similar to the fact that nobody knows when Columbus day is without looking at a calender.

    I guarantee you that nobody will randomly scream "IT'S DEADMAU5 DAY!!!! HE'S THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON ALIVE! LETS CALL OFF SCHOOL! WOO". Chances are everyone will forget this was even a day (at least until that day comes around and it's mentioned).

    I was going to type up some joke about how stupid this is, and how terrible Deadmouse is, but no, it's not even worth that.

    This is stupid, and Deadmouse is terrible.
