Rock 'n' roll may be here to stay, but so are DJs.

Years ago, the music industry may have considered rock stars as the ultimate performers. They could fill every seat in giant arenas, make millions in one tour and of course get all the ladies.

But in recent months, we can't help but notice a new trend on the music scene. DJs can do that and so much more.

Whether obtaining residencies in Las Vegas, scoring supermodels as girlfriends or simply just doing what they love, DJ's aren't doing so bad professionally and personally.

We're taking a look at just some of the famous DJs who have proven they have the talents and star-power to be called whatever they want!
