Daft Punk Rules

Daft Punk

…they do. But the following are my rules of Daft Punk DJ etiquette.

Daft Punk Rules

1.) These rules do not apply as there are no rules where music is concerned
2.) Re-read rule 1 aloud.

3.) You can only play one Daft Punk track. If you play Daft Punk once you cannot play a Justice track. If you play a Justice track, you cannot play Daft Punk track. You must choose.
If you elect not to choose, playing one Daft Punk and one Justice track can be forgiven.
If you decide to completely break this rule, the egregiousness by which you break this rule grows exponentially by the quantity by which it is broken.

4.) If you play a Daft Punk track, it must be at a solid point of your mix, and no other option should be available in its stead. Daft Punk tracks are best used early on to put the crowd in a good mood or to bring them to their highest state.

5.) If you play Daft Punk more than twice, you are trying to be Daft Punk. Morons who think that you ARE Daft Punk will be confused and think you’re the greatest DJ ever, which you’re not if you’re copying. For examples of such morons, see http://www.hotchickswithdouchebags.com/.

6.) Choose the Daft Punk track carefully. If several DJ’s play the same remix, the crowd becomes quickly bored.

7.) Remixes of Daft Punk are preferred, preferably your own.

8.) Music is preferred, preferably your own. Electronic artists should challenge themselves to outdo what Daft Punk did with Alive. I personally believe that is impossible and dream to be proven wrong.

9.) For an example of the best use of Daft Punk by a DJ, click below.

    Uhh, your rules don’t make any sense. Especially the part about there not being rules. I would put it more like this:

    “If you are a DJ and you play a Daft Punk or Justice song in today’s wintery economic climate, I will think you suck. Play some new god damned music for a change. The only exception to this rule is if you are Daft Punk or Justice.”
