` A Ke$ha song that's been topping the charts for weeks is suddenly taken off the airwaves.
Stations across the U.S. Including Chattanooga's Hits 96 say the song "Die Young" is too insinsitive to the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy.
Hits 96 Station Manager Danny Howard says, "We just thought that although there is no reference to take a gun to school or any intent on Ke$ha's part to sing about that tragedy, we just thought that singing about dying young at this point, after this tragedy has happened would be in poor taste."
Band Foster the People's hit Pumped Up Kicks is even more controversial, with reference to a kid with a gun, and lyrics like "you better outrun my gun" and "run faster than my bullet."
It was one of the first songs when we heard of the tragedy that happened last Friday that we pulled because of the nature of those lyrics," said Howard
Some people say it's unnecessary
That's just art. I mean art has talked about dying forever," said Drew Posey.
But others say it's the respectful thing to do.
"I think we should do anything we can to help through this time and if that means banning a couple songs it doesn't bother me any. There's always other songs to listen to," Said Jamie Hampton.
The Hits 96 manager says the decision isn't not permanent...
"Once some time of healing takes place, we'll re evaluate that but until then, I think not so," said Howard.
