"We Are Your Friends" is a song credited to Justice vs. Simian, and is French duo Justice's remix of the track "Never Be Alone" by Simian, it was released as a single in 2006. It reached number 20 in the UK Singles Chart.[1]

The song's music video won the 2006 MTV Europe Music Award for Best Video. The presentation of the award was interrupted by Kanye West.[2]

Despite winning the award for Best Hip-Hop, Kanye West apparently was so disappointed at not winning for Best Video that he crashed the stage when the award was being presented to Justice vs. Simian for "We Are Your Friends". In a tirade riddled with expletives, Kanye West said he should have won the prize for his video "Touch the Sky", because it "cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it. I was jumping across canyons." "If I don't win, the awards show loses credibility", West said.

The 2015 film We Are Your Friends took its title from the song. [3]
