Despite condemning big-name collaborations on Tumblr, Deadmau5 has several of his own on album title goes here, including this hook up with rap group Cypress Hill. The musician born Joel Zimmerman explained to Spin magazine that "the collaborations were organic." He said that for this song, "I was sitting in Tommy Lee's basement and Cypress Hill were there hanging out. I threw them this hip-hop-sounding track I'd had forever and said, "Hey, just take it home." I was really surprised when they came back with a song."
Dido helped shut down a Neo-Nazi Web site after learning it was using "White Flag" to promote its hateful messages. Owners of the site had misinterpreted the track as racist and thought they represented their white supremacy views.
