K, so there’s really no way of telling exactly how many people have done the nasty in the darkness to “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” over the past decade, but we do know that The Darkness’ classic tune is all about love, acceptance, and, well … gettin’ it on. But let’s make one thing very clear, rockers and rockettes: Use protection and make certain your partner is has been tested before “Touchin’ youuuuuuuuuuu.” 1 in 2 young people will get an STD by the age of 25, and while we believe in a thing called love, we also totally believe in safe sex.

Outside of its sexy messaging, “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” may as well be the theme song for organizations like Love Is Louder and GLAAD. Love Is Louder encourages young people to stay positive in the face of negativity, while GLAAD has been believing in a thing called acceptance for over 25 years. Follow the action links below if you believe that a thing called love is the best way to do away with all of the hatred in the world.
