For anyone who’s not already aware, The Chainsmokers are actually pretty active on Reddit, often popping into random threads or starting their own discussions on various subreddits.

As evidence of this, The Chainsmokers posted their top 5 EDM songs of all time in a thread on /r/EDM last week, and hardly anyone noticed. It was only just yesterday that a screenshot of their response hit the front page on the same subreddit that people realized.

Even the top response is questioning whether it’s really them or not… Spoiler: it is.

Comment from discussion Greatest EDM track.

For their choices, The Chainsmokers select some real serious hits:

  • deadmau5 – Strobe
  • Calvin Harris – Feel So Close
  • Nadia Ali, Starkillers & Alex Kenji – Pressure (Alesso Remix)
  • Avicii – Seek Bromance
  • Swedish House Mafia – Leave The World Behind

Each of these songs left such a powerful lasting impact on the dance music world; you can probably think of at least one time you heard one of these songs and had a powerful experience, if not the first time you heard them.

People give The Chainsmokers a lot of flack for putting out a lot of music that would fall under pop these days, but at the end of the day, they’re still just as in love with EDM as they were when they first started.
