Bad Guy (stylized in all lowercase) is a song recorded by American singer Billie Eilish. It was released by Darkroom and Interscope Records as the fifth single from Eilish’s debut studio album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell co-wrote “Bad Guy”, with the latter producing it and the former providing additional production. The song was described as electropop, dance-pop, pop-trap, and nu-goth pop in press reviews, for which synth bass, a kick drum, finger snaps, and 808 bass provide minimalist instrumentation. During the song’s lyrics, Eilish taunts her lover for being a bad guy although suggesting that she is more resilient than him, and further touches on themes about misandry and sarcasm.

 

“Bad Guy”

White shirt now red, my bloody nose
Sleeping, you’re on your tippy toes
Creeping around like no one knows
Think you’re so criminalBruises on both my knees for you
Don’t say thank you or please, I do
What I want when I’m wanting to
My soul? So cynical

So you’re a tough guy
Like-it-really-rough guy
Just-can’t-get-enough guy
Chest-always-so-puffed guy
I’m that bad type
Make-your-mama-sad type
Make-your-girlfriend-mad type
Might-seduce-your-dad type
I’m the bad guy, duh

I’m the bad guy

I like it when you take control
Even if you know that you don’t
Own me, I’ll let you play the role
I’ll be your animal

My mommy likes to sing along
With me but she won’t sing this song
If she reads all the lyrics
She’ll pity the men I know

So you’re a tough guy
Like-it-really-rough guy
Just-can’t-get-enough guy
Chest-always-so-puffed guy
I’m that bad type
Make-your-mama-sad type
Make-your-girlfriend-mad type
Might-seduce-your-dad type
I’m the bad guy, duh

I’m the bad guy, duh

I’m only good at being bad
Bad

I like when you get mad
I guess I’m pretty glad
That you’re alone
You said she’s scared of me?
I mean
I don’t see what she sees
But maybe it’s ’cause I’m wearing your cologne

I’m a bad guy
I’m, I’m a bad guy
Bad guy, bad guy
I’m a bad guy

This song was teased by Billie Eilish with a video snippet on the 18th of February 2019. “Bad Guy” was released on the 29th of March 2019.
