Nothing fits right on this day: not social media, not brands, not brands on social media, not buying coffee, not unbidden joy, not #1 hits about cocaine, and certainly not Karmin. Nevertheless, Karmin has chosen to release this “I Can’t Feel My Face” cover (with bonus “Hella Good” mashup at the end) on 9/11, presumably in an attempt to try to overshadow a tragedy that cannot be overshadowed.

A moment of silence for all who are personally affected by this tragic day.

A previous version of this post had the last line as the headline.
