Arcade Fire's Will Butler called out EDM performers at Coachella's first weekend and now it seems like his comments rubbed a certain mouse the wrong way.

"Shout-out to all the bands still playing actual instruments at this festival," Butler said to the crowd. Outspoken DJ Deadmau5 (aka Joel Zimmerman) called out the band on Twitter, asking "Dafuqs yer problem?"

Deadmau5 made waves in the EDM community when he called out his contemporaries (and himself) for being part of the "press-play" culture. In an essay on his Tumblr that begins with "We all hit play," he wrote, "I think given about 1 hour of instruction, anyone with minimal knowledge of ableton and music tech in general could DO what im doing at a deadmau5 concert."

Well, at least he's consistent. Long live music in the year 2014!
