Story behind the name

Zimmerman's father says that while his son was in his early teens, he was using his computer to talk to a friend when it suddenly shut off. Zimmerman’s father claimed it smelled like burned wire and was otherwise peculiar. As Zimmerman began to disassemble his computer, he discovered a dead mouse. Friends started calling Zimmerman the "dead mouse guy" at that point. He attempted to use the moniker "Deadmouse" in an internet chat room, but it was too long, so he abbreviated it to "Deadmau5". The German word for "mouse," "maus," is pronounced similarly to the English word. He then switched the ‘s’ to a ‘5.’

The original "mau5head" logo was designed by Zimmerman during his training in 3D modeling software. It can be found on the cover art of the majority of his albums and comes in a variety of colors and patterns. One of his friends, Jay Gordon from the industrial metal band Orgy, gave him the idea to wear a helmet based his emblem. Zimmerman stated in a CBC Television interview that he wants his logo to become a "icon". When Deadmau5 performs, fans frequently show up wearing their own versions of the mau5head.

In 2002, he built his own website, started creating under the moniker "Deadmau5", and uploaded songs to SectionZ.
