Brooklyn producer We Are Temporary (wearetemporary.com) remixes Kesha's 2012 mega-hit 'Die Young' and cuts out all of Dr. Luke's contributions. Videopunks works his analog magic to transform the original music video into a poignant, fair-use commentary on the millions of women who have been sexually abused, and who, like Kesha, are far too often shrugged off, silenced, and casually accused of hysteria and hyperbole. As men AND women, our knee-jerk reaction should never be ‘this doesn’t affect me, so I’ll keep quiet.’ Abuse, racism, sexism, and classism affect all of us. We should be uncomfortable—uncomfortable enough to say something, and uncomfortable enough to break copyright in pursuit of a more just society. #FreeKesha
