Kesha’s ‘Die Young’ Shunned By Radio after Connecticut School Shooting

Radio stations across the country have pulled the plug on Kesha’s hit “Die Young” after Friday’s tragic school shootings in Newtown, CT.

TMZ reports that radio airplay website Mediabase listed “Die Young” as the third most played song on radio the day of the tragedy, reaching about 167 million listeners nationwide. It has since dropped down to 148 million listeners. That’s a drop of 19 million.

An industry insider told the entertainment news site that the last time a song took such a huge drop was when country radio banned the Dixie Chicks after they made comments about then-President George W. Bush.

No official comment from Kesha or her management, though the eccentric singer did tweet out her support for the victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting.
