Picks and Pans Review: Ke$ha's Backstage Playlist

UPDATED 04/25/2011 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 04/25/2011 at 01:00 AM EDT

DAFT PUNK, "SOMETHING ABOUT US"

It's just a really beautiful song-I connect with the words so much. Daft Punk are one of the main reasons I do the kind of music I do.

MICKEY AVALON, "MY D--"

The first tour I ever went on was with Mickey. This song is hilarious, and Dirty Nasty [the rapper alias of former MTV veejay Simon Rex] is on it. They are like my crew. When I was broke and living out of my car in L.A., they were so cool.

BEASTIE BOYS, "(YOU GOTTA) FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT (TO PARTY!)"

I cover that on tour. One of my dancers got a huge gash and a black eye because we got crazy [performing it].

LED ZEPPELIN, "BLACK DOG"

No matter where I am, it gets me in the mood to party.

ALICE COOPER, "FEED MY FRANKENSTEIN"

Alice has been like a mentor. We met at the Grammys and started talking about aliens. It was just love!
