    I'm really having fun about how people get angry because the music they don't like becomes more popular than any artists from their own playlists. It's like the world owes them and has to listen only to the stuff they approve of. Chill out, kids, nobody forces you into anything.

    Полностью поддерживаю господина с ником drochlen. Скриллекс всю жизнь проведет, развлекая недалекую молодежь в клубах.

    Раньше это была тема, лол. Думаю каждый успел заценить это дерьмо, некоторые сразу понимали, что это дерьмо, но было же время, когда доставляло.
