Bad Romance (4:55)

Cover of The Fame Monster

From The Fame Monster and 55 other releases

This song is the lead single from her second studio release The Fame Monster.

The track was produced by RedOne and was inspired by the ‘Love Monster’ that she had faced while touring through the previous year. GaGa was quoted saying ‘It’s a song about being in love with your best friend.’

According to the Bad Romance Songfacts, when this reached #1 in the UK, Lady Gaga became the first solo female artist to have three chart-toppers in a calendar year.

After the demo version of the song leaked, Gaga premiered the song at Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2010 Paris Fashion Week show on October 6, 2009, followed by the release of the cover art.

The song was officially released as a single on October 25, 2009. Composed in a similar tempo to her previous singles, Bad Romance features a sing-and-tell bridge and a full-mouthed chorus. The song talks about exploring the joys of a bad romance while referencing Alfred Hitchcock films in some of the verses.
