I hear your heartbeat to the beat of the drums

So while your here in my arms,lets make the most of the night like we're gonna Die Young
We're gonna Die Young
We're gonna Die Young
Lets make...

    I think Kesha is showing what her belief is, is that teenagers that are still young are going to not listen and party, get drunk, and have sex than die young! Kesha believes that if she is joined with the devil which is a distraction in the music video that makes her goes wild, and she’ll be able to stay young forever and be able to do whatever she wants!

    This song was inspired by the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

    It is like a twisted YOLO song.
    First there's this totally hot guy w/ and girlfriend/date

    Then the girl steps away
    After that they dance and make the most of the night like their gonna die young until that girl comes back and in the song she doesn't. Watch the music video to confuse you even more :)

    i think that the song is about her having a crush on a boy and that she is jelous about this girl that he brought with to the party. finally when she gets the chance to be alone with him she wants to make the most of the night with him and that she wnts to show him why he should be with her and not the other girl. she also gives the wrong message to us teenagers , she tells us to live our life to teh fullest bescause we're gonna die young. in the club she sees this boy and he gets a boner and she starts to blush which means she wants him with her in the bed ,and they just take shots and pull their pants down to their sock , which means sexually things is going to happen. she tells the boy to take her hand she'll show him the wild side and thats she's looking for some trouble tonight which means she wants the boy to look at her and fall in love and just take her to bed and she'll show him how wild she can be. she also says that he must kiss her and give his all to her. she hears his heart beat which also means that she is lying in his arms in the bed with her head on his chest just done with sex in the bed.

    The most obvious, and intended, meaning behind Die Young is to live life to its fullest; Carpe Diem.
    However, there is a much darker meaning that is implied through the repetition of the phrase, "we're gonna die young." This being said without the accompaniment of "Let's make the most of the night like...," which essentially strips the "carpe diem" message for that portion, only leaving an eerie theme of dying young.

    Die Young is yet another video that depicts police state oppression and violence as normal, even cool

    I am formally known as Amy Mcturk. Vice Captain of OLHS. I therefore beleive I have the knowledge to accurately pinpoint the true meaning of 'die young' by Kesha. I truly beleive that Ms Kesha has taken this meaning of die young and turned it into a message for the youth of today to celebrate innocence, fun and the essence of life. It creates deep stirrings of emotion within me that compels me to visit my local off-license, get a jump in, drink a wkd and get fucking mwi. YOLO guys xo

    The meaning of this song is to live carefree because live is to short to be bored

    Basically, this song talks about kesha alone with someone in the bed having sex. 'I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums', on the silent night she could her his heart beating. The rest is her telling him about why it was a shame that he came with someone but he was with kesha. Then she sings lets make the most of the night like they're going to die young. The next paragraph talks about them in the club taking shots and having fun, sinning and doing wrong.

    I agree with the many on here that its about living hard and to its fullest. Now how many times are we given an opportuntiy to do something that we know we shouldnt and do it anyways? almost everytime. We all live to the fullest. If you dont, why live? words to live by..

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    The song is about having an attraction to someone but not being able to act on it because he has a girlfriend. She wants to make the most of their time together.

    In an interview she was asked why there was so much illuminati symbolism in her video and she said that she loves symbols and messing with their meaning. Basically she is trolling the world and making fun of artists such as Rihanna, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga, I personally think it's hilarious. Even if that was a lie and she worships the Devil, who cares? At least she is living life to the fullest and not directly hurting anybody. People need to grow up and ignore what they don't like.
