Rolling Stone’s ‘Rocker Vs. DJ’ Commercial Is One Big F*ck You To Electronic Music

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Rolling Stone Italy commissioned an ad from director Federico Brugia and Filmmaster Productions that calls out “all those who think they can make music and involve the masses without any musical research but with a mere use of others’ files.” A.k.a. GUITARS RULE, EDM DROOLS.

Dangerous Minds adds that it’s unclear whether it’s “a real ad commissioned by Rolling Stone or else something for the director’s reel,” because it’s certainly peculiar for a major music publication to alienate millions of potential readers by saying, “The music you love is like maggots in our ears.” Except for the time Modern Ukulele Monthly published their devastating exposé on the lute — man, the lute industry STILL hasn’t recovered from that hit job.
