Ke$ha Die YoungAccording to TMZ, Ke$ha’s hit “Die Young” has fallen from airwaves after the Sandy Hook shooting in Newton, Ct. Radio stations across the country have nixed the song from their rotations after the tragedy.

“Die Young” was at the number three spot on the radio playlists on Friday, the day of the shooting, reaching over 167 million listeners nationwide according to Mediabase. On Saturday, the airplay of the song  dropped by 3 million listeners. By Monday, “Die Young” had fallen 148 million listeners and has been dropping ever since. A drop like this is extremely rare. The last time this harsh drop has happened was when the Dixie Chicks were banned from country radio after speaking out against former President George Bush.

It’s understandable that the Ke$ha track will be cut from stations after the tragedy of Sandy Hook. The sensitivity level of the nation has increased with the sadness brought on by the deaths of 20 small children. Shows have been postponed and cancelled due to the issue and the song doesn’t seem to be an exception.

“Die Young” can be heard on Ke$ha’s album Warrior.
