EDM stars Avicii and Deadmau5 have responded to recent comments made by Noel Gallagher.

Gallagher recently made headlines by dismissing the electronic acts. The former Oasis man told NME of the Swedish DJ: "I don’t know anything about Avicii. I don’t wish to know anything about Avicii. It sounds like an artist from the Renaissance period". See that clip by scrolling below.

He also introduced himself at T In The Park as "Deadmau5 without the stupid fucking hat".

In response, Avicii has posted a South Park clip seemingly mocking Gallagher to Instagram, writing in its caption: "Sounds like you’re playing the wrong festival if you’re at the same time dissing its entire audiences music taste you silly sausage!"

He added: "There are still good bands, still making great music that changes peoples lives, – what is really 'sad' is hearing a old time musician like yourself confessing so bluntly and openly to not having an open mind to new music by dissing shit you haven’t even heard, I really didn’t think someone whose whole image is being witty would turn all stereotype 'bitter ol timer rocker' like that.

"I wish you nothing but the best and hope you one day will broaden your music taste and keep developing [yourself] as an artist and musician. I would actually love to preview you my album song by song and hear your honest feedback but I dare you to say the same thing afterwards."
