But we also love songs that don’t care—whose singers tell us how little they think about an ex-lover, like Demi Lovato’s “Really Don’t Care,” or someone else’s opinions, like Kanye West’s “We Don’t Care.” Why does this attitude—so simple, yet so universal—continue to speak to us across so many genres and generations? Here’s our Take on how the “don’t care” song tells us something important with its indifference, and why we care about songs that don’t.
