“We R Who We R” is a song by American recording artist and songwriter Kesha from her first extended play (EP), Cannibal (2010). The song was released as the EP’s lead single on October 22, 2010. It was written by Kesha, with Jacob Kasher Hindlin, Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco and Ammo. Production of the song was completed by Dr. Luke, Blanco, and Ammo. In the wake of news that bullying had led to multiple suicides of gay youth, Kesha wrote the song in hopes that it would become a pride anthem. The song is intended to inspire people to be themselves, and as a celebration of anyone deemed quirky or eccentric.

Musically, the song is a dance-pop song that incorporates elements of electropop and techno; it uses a synth-infused beat as a backing with sounds interpreted as hand claps. Kesha’s vocals have been described as a talk-singing style that use layered Auto-Tune in some parts and vocoders.
