News Of Bin Laden’s Death Greeted With “Party in the USA”

|

Osama bin Laden has been killed, and some Americans want to celebrate en masse without leaving their houses. Where do they go?

To the YouTube video of “Party in the USA” by Miley Cyrus, it turns out. In the wake of the news, the song has become the de facto celebratory anthem, its comments section playing host to hundreds of cheers, dozens of jokes and pranks, and the occasional conspiracy theory. Gathered crowds across the nation may have been singing Steam’s “Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye),” but online, they were singing a different tune.

So if there was any doubt, even after a singalong after an Atlanta hardcore show went viral, that Cyrus had captured the zeitgeist, it’s probably safe to put those doubts to rest.
