Skrillex video game isn't a brown first-person shooter

I don't mind some of it but todays dubstep is a long long way from its roots.

Yep, he was in From First To Last I believe.

Absolutely love Skrillex. Not a huge fan of the rip-offs of his particular brand of dub step. Knife Party? Ew...

I haven't read the headline or any of the story but I've got some scissors and a pair of thinsulate gloves if anybody else wants in on that.
