The Resume

    Formed in New York City (2012)
    EDM DJ duo consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart
    Singles include '#Selfie', 'Roses' (with Rozes), 'Don't Let Me Down' (with Daya) and 'Closer' (with Halsey)

Why they might be annoying:

    They met on Chatroulette.
    They gained prominence through recording re-mixes of other artists' songs.
    Their breakthrough hit, '#Selfie', was maligned, and considered by many to be one of the worst songs of 2014.
    Their music is formulaic - a repetitive EDM beat and vocals from an emerging artist.
    Their answers in interviews range from bizarre to sarcastic, but rarely, serious.

Why they might not be annoying:

    They scored 3 Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hits between the summer of 2015 and the summer of 2016.
    They listen to a wide range of music, staying on top of trends from multiple genres.
    Their interviews can be humorous (if you like sarcastic answers to most questions).
    One thing they were serious about: not supporing Donald Trump's 2016 presidential bid.
    Though they record EDM, their songs managed to receive airplay on some urban/rhythmic top 40 stations.
