Ke$ha's latest single has been pulled from many radio stations in the wake of the Newtown tragedy, TMZ reports. "Die Young" ranked third on radio playlists last Friday (when the shooting occurred) and reached approximately 167 million listeners across the country, according to Mediabase, which follows radio airplay.

However, as it fell off some stations' playlists, the song lost 19 million listeners, dropping to 148 million listeners on Monday. One music expert who spoke to TMZ likened the dramatic drop to that suffered by the Dixie Chicks in 2003 when they were banned from country radio after slamming President George W. Bush.

Ke$ha, 25, did not address radio play for "Die Young," but encouraged her Twitter followers to donate to help those affected by the elementary school tragedy. "It's beyond words what has happened. Help families affected by the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary by donating here," she wrote, linking to a fund started by band OneRepublic.
