Fans are campaigning to get The Prodigy‘s “Firestarter” to #1. In the wake of the tragic death of Keith Flint, the group’s iconic frontman, fans want to make sure the fire continues.
A new campaign on Facebook encourages music fans to play and purchase The Prodigy’s standout track “Firestarter” in honor of the late legend. The goal is for the track to achieve #1 status, so don’t be afraid to hit that repeat button.
The idea is bigger than just topping the charts, however. The petition reads:
We need to raise awareness of mental health issues and suicide. Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 and that needs to change! This is the best way to raise Keith’s profile and bring his plight to the forefront of pop culture and mainstream.
Flint is remembered by his bandmates as a “a true pioneer, innovator and legend.” The entire dance music community echoes the same.
The Prodigy have since cancelled all of their upcoming tour dates, including Glastonbury 2019.
See the event here, get involved, and listen below. And, repeat.
