Before she signed with Roc Nation and started writing songs for Rihanna, Grimes was already making legendary moves. Back in August of 2013, she was invited to DJ a Boiler Room party in Ibiza. But instead of giving the crowd what they wanted (or expected), Grimes played Taylor Swift, Daddy Yankee, Venga Boys, and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You.” The attendees were very confused. After the show, Grimes insisted that she was not trolling and that there is nothing ironic about what she does.
Whatever the case, Grimes’ Boiler Room set will go down as a historic moment in DJing history, but Boiler Room has not uploaded the set, as they typically do with Boiler Room events. So one fan—who goes by the name Queer Hawk—has taken to change.org and started a petition.
“Upload the Grimes set from Richie Hawtin’s House in Ibiza #FREEGRIMES,” reads the title. Queer Hawk goes on to explain, “Probably the best set ever played in the history of Boiler Room but they can’t get past their own pretentiousness to see that.”
The petition itself reads:
