We didn't get the thread open when the single was actually released but as the music video was released 5 years ago this week, let's reminisce.

Written and produced by Gaga and RedOne, the single harked back to some of TFM sounds whilst offering a new, more industrial sound at the same time.

Gaga says that the song is about "falling in love with the wrong man over and over again"... “The song is about honoring your darkness in order to bring yourself into the light... You have to look into what’s haunting you and need to learn to forgive yourself in order to move on."

Reaching the top 10 in most countries, it was a middling success and led into the album release a few weeks later.

What do you think of the song and music video now? Do you think it was the best choice for second single? Discuss everything about the biblical banger here~

Nope it wasn't and just made more people shout, Reductive Madonna and lose her street cred.

The Steps-lite chorus is PURE CHEESE!!! and should be BURIED IN THE SAND WITH ALL THOSE COPIES OF E.T!!!

I was even mroe mentally unstable when this came out than BTW laugh.gif I think I listened to nothing but this for about 10 hours on repeat!! 9 weeks at #1 in my chart consecutively too which is still the longest runner *.* Such a fab pop song, I love the chorus! It's so melodic it could belong to a huge Melodifestivalen song.

One of my favourite Gaga songs ever now. Bad Romance is my favourite, but for when I'm just doing casual music listens, this tends to be my go to. It seems to have got better with age for me.

I didn't think this was that liked anymore so glad to see all the love here. It has a fantastic chorus and I love the 'Judas' refrain bit too. Part of my Lady Gag trinity along with Paparazzi and Do What U Want.

I LOATHED this at the time. I still find the production hard work, as with most of the parent album, but the chorus has worked on me over the years and now I can listen to it happily enough, so I guess that puts it in the upper half of the Gaga ouvre.

I really like the video but still have issues with the song like I think it's always sounded very dated? And not as strong as it should be, it falls flat for me. Definitely weaker than the singles that came before and after it, but it did grow with repeat listens and I guess I accept it for what it is these days when at the time I saw it as a massive disappointment.

The video is definitely one of the best she's done (probably in my top 3 videos from her). The song I like but don't LOVE and have never been really really invested in it like 90% of her other singles. I do find in such a strong back catalogue it does get swallowed up a fair bit, but as others have said it's so fun and always a RIOT whenever I play it. I always actually forget how good a song it is until i'm actually listening to it.

It should not have been the second single by any means. The 'Born This Way' album is filled to the brim with huge songs, this was not the right choice in any way. I think it should have remained a STRONG album track (with a video kink.gif).

You are absolutely reet tbh!

SHe had such a huuge choice for second single - Marry The Night, Edge of Glory!!, Sheisse, that this album track was not needed as a single. It sounded and looked reductive, lookedlike she was chasing controversy and chasing Madonna, and after Born This Way/ Express Yoruself trends on Twitter and youtube mash-ups, that was the LAST thing she needed, rather than doubling down on it.

She coulda done a video for fans and had it like an insta-grat, but it shouldn't have been a single.

I remember liking the chorus and hating the verses. 5 years on I dont mind the song, its fun, but it got completely overshadowed by the far superior Edge Of Glory for me.

Judas is the ONLY single from Born This Way I love. Although I forget how much I like The Edge Of Glory until I hear it.

I absolutely hate the chorus, it's just too cheesy for its own good. The verses and video are excellent though and save it from being a write off.
