Miley Cyrus '"Party in the United States' death of bin Laden's reference commentary

Miley Cyrus' hit single "Party in the USA" became an unlikely anthem for the moment Sunday night as news spread that U.S. forces had tracked down and killed Osama bin Laden. As a result, the YouTube page for the song has been flooded with comments referencing bin Laden's death.

The two top comments as of this writing are "song for osama's funreal..." and "miley Rocks!! every week ' PARTY IN THE USA' because bin laden has killed." The video has received a flood of traffic over the past 24 hours with some comments that are funny ("MIley killed Osama!") and others that are informative ("LIKE THIS COMMENT IF WATCHING THIS VIDEO IS LITERALLY THE FIRST THING YOU DID AFTER YOU LEARNED OSAMA WAS DEAD.")

Meanwhile the song has become the subject of a Facebook fan page called "Osama bin Laden's funeral song - Party in the USA." It currently has just over 5,000 fans. Several media outlets have further reported that people out in the streets have played the song in celebration.

Miley herself has yet to comment on the phenomenon, and it's hard to tell how she would react to having her light-hearted summer jam tied to the death of America's most-hated enemy. We can only hope the topic comes up on her Twitter.
