Esquire ruffled some feathers this week when they called The Chainsmokers the “Nickelback of EDM.”

They claimed that they are following in Nickelback’s footsteps by “becoming immensely popular by using the worst cliches the genre has to offer.”




Yesterday, The Chainsmokers fired back with this gorgeous rendition of ‘Paris’ and ‘How You Remind Me’



We think Alex and Drew won this battle.

ICYMI: Adam Wylde interviewed Alex from The Chainsmokers, take a listen to it here.
