Noughties By Nature #37: Justice vs Simian - We Are Your Friends

The best dance track of the noughties. We Are Your Friends started off as an entry into a college radio dance remix competition and ended with murderous stabbing synths and the funkiest bass line that Daft Punk never wrote. There are very few electronic dance tracks that can feel as hands in the air celebratory as We Are Your Friends, yet despite the enormous happy vibes it spits out the song never sounds like a big slab of cheddar in a keyboard sandwich. We Are Your Friends is designed to make you feel deliriously happy, unless your name is Kanye West, who launched an outburst at the MTV Europe Awards when the Justice vs. Simian video beat his own video to an award.
