This is the third single by deadmau5, from his sixth studio album, titled Album Title Goes Here. It was originally premiered by the Canadian electronic music producer as an instrumental during his headlining performance at Lollapalooza in August 2011. Deadmau5 then enlisted Gerard Way, lead singer of My Chemical Romance, for the vocal version, which was released on September 24, 2012.
Those of you not au fait with video game terminology may be under the impression that the song title is a reference to habitual mourners. It in fact refers to those people in multiplayer video games who cause other users grief by being as annoying as possible. Common methods include intentionally killing other players, blocking another player's way, written or verbal insults and crashing servers.
The song's music video was produced by Dave Stewart's Weapons of Mass Entertainment production company. Directed by Paul Boyd and Jeff Ranasinghe, it features deadmau5 and Way in a mechanical fight. According to press materials it broke the record for the highest budget music video for any electronic music song ever.
