For Crimes Against the Dancefloor, 5 DJs Enter EDM Kangaroo Court

Like any style of music with more than 15 fans, EDM has its artists that people love to hate. You don't get to a million followers on Twitter without gathering a few haters along the way, and no matter how many fans you have, it seems like the minority is always more vocal.

That's not to say these opposing voices are wrong. In fact, some of them make very good points.

Today we look at five of our favorite EDM acts, the cases against them, and the punishments they should receive, if this were an actual court of law. Please rise -- kangaroo court is now in session.
