Ke$ha's new single "Die Young" is thrilling because she manages to balance out the song's "carpe diem!" enthusiasm with a genuine sense of dread. Each time she sings the phrase "we're gonna die young," the possibility seems more real. It is, hands down, the most gleefully morbid party jam since Prince's "1999." (That song has more or less the same sentiment, but is a little less bleak.)

So, what if Ke$ha is right, and you're going to die young? How will it go down? These are the most common causes of death for Americans between 15 and 24.
