Bad Kids Lyrics

We don't care what people say
We know the truth
Enough is enough with this horse sh*t
I am not a freak
I was born with my freedom
Don't tell me I'm less than my freedom

I'm a b*tch, I'm a loser baby maybe I should quit
I'm a jerk,...

    I think this song shows how society has a wrong interpitation of "bad kids." For instance, people often think that kids who wear the dark clothes, dye their hair, and wear the dark make up are "bad kids." When they have done nothing wrong to make them bad. They are just expressing who they are, which is no crime. Another example is how gays are treated with a lack of respect, even though it is something they are born with. Being gay, lesbian, bi, etc. does not make you a bad kid. I think the lyrics are intended to go against the what society considers wrong, and empowers those who are misunderstood.

    I think this song is about young anarchist rebeliants who don't want to be controlled, that's why they are pushing their independence off the limits, which is considered by most as being "bad" and degenerative. The stereotypes they have received have pushed them even deeper into their extremity, which is showing by their look - dyed hair, dark clothes, rings and other things that make them feel more individual and unique. But there's an other side of the medal, that this fact is making them even more separate from the other groups in society, so they may be feeling lonely and unaccepted. GaGa is trying to show us, that under the mask of rebelliance, there's still a human, who needs to be understanded and accepted, instead of being used as an example of a weird and inappropriate behavior.

    This song is about the kids who have been told that their "bad", so they feel crushed, and since they've tried to fit in and it never works, so they're like, "Fuck it!", and they become the "bad kids" of society, because that is what people expect. Most people like this are very very insecure, and they've been dealing with rejection their whole life, and all they want, is to be accepted. This song is dedicated to them, and the singer is giving them the acceptance they crave.

    To me it's about not being like everyone else and feeling "bad" or different about it. And instead of feeling bad about it, all us "bad" kids should band together, be confident and happy about who we are and make different the norm. So many of her songs seem silly and meaningless until you really listen to it. She's very empowering.

    This song is about how society makes you feel oppressed. That happens when you are bearing bad things of the rest of the people and ''It doesn't matter''. But if you make something wrong, there's a disaster.

    So it's normal that sometimes you get angry, but people don't understand you because they analyze your problems and defects like ''scientifics''.

    Therefore, they think that you are a bad kid, the worst person in the world, because if you have some mistake, you will have it for life. But in reality you're not a perfect machine, but a person with feelings.

    And the worst thing that can happen it’s believing everything which those ''scientifics'' think of you, because you will feel guilty and like a bad kid (''Don't be insecure If your heart is pure '').

    Never forget that you were born this way!

    P.D: I apologize for my English!

    She wrote this song using stories that she had heard from little monster on the road. It is about how you can be a "bad kid" bit deep down your heart is good.

    This song is simple to interpret. It's about how even if you think you're a bad person and no matter how many times you think you've screwed up you should just be yourself and not wallow in self-hate and regret because you've got good in you somewhere.
