DID YOU KNOW?
The name deadmau5 originates from an incident where a mouse crawled into his computer and died. He then posted on an internet forum of his shenanigans, and the members began calling him TheDeadMouseGuy. Dead Mouse was too long for an IRC login name, so he abbreviated it to 'deadmau5'.
