10 years ago, Gaga premiered the first song of her new Monstrous era. 'Bad Romance' has since gone on to win 2 Grammy Awards, be certified 11-times platinum in the US, topped the charts in more than 20 countries, sold 12 million copies worldwide, have one of the most highly rated music videos of all time, won 7 MTV VMAs and countless other accolades.

10 years on, what are your thoughts on the song?

It's powerhouse pop perfection that never ceases to amaze me. It's one of those songs I'm never tired of hearing and there are not many. It's up there with Like a Prayer when we talk about POP CLASSICS. I'm so lucky to witness that era!


I don't have any particular memories though, I don't even remember where and when I saw the video for the first time, most likely watching MTV. Just love it from the bottom of my heart!

The song is quite simply pop perfection. It's explosive, bold and incredibly zany - just what Gaga represent(s/ed)! A soaring chorus, that really put the idea of Monsters onto the map - it became ok to be a freak, a weirdo, an outcast; it became ok to fail at love and be broken; it became ok to be dark and twisted.

Definitely up there with the classics now and I too am so glad to have been around for the birth of its legacy. There really hasn't been a pop song as BIG as this since.

10 years on and it hasn't aged ONE bit.

I can easily say it's one of the greatest pop songs of all time.

As IF it's 10 years. Where has that time gone?

It's something so special, magnificent and just MASSIVE as far as pop songs go. How do you top it?

A genuinely really special song for me.

It set my total obsession with her to a whole new level.

The demo of the track was already something I loved (BURN EXCLUSIVE BABY)

But the first time I heard the official song and then seen the video I was completely blown away.

I never tire of hearing it either and I’d also rate it in the same vein as Like A Prayer too as it just being one of those pop smashes what has absolutely everything!

The song itself though is so Gaga!!! Like without the name check in the song I totally couldn’t imagine anyone else pulling this off. It’s OTT in the best possible way. I can’t believe Gaga was younger than me now when this was released.

Sexxx Dreams trumps her all songs tbh but it doesn't make BR any worse

I think if I had to name my favourite Gaga song it would be this! It's timeless really and still sounds just as good as god knows how many times I've heard it. Full of hooks and personality, a key change, massive chorus. It's really been crafted to be a moment! The video as well also adds to how well the song has aged and there's many memorable scenes/looks in it for something that doesn't really have much of a storyline.

Still surprises me that it didn't debut top 10 let alone #1 and had to climb all the way up!

Such a brilliant, timeless pop anthem.

I remember everyone literally saying this was "a flop" coz it's first 3 weeks didn't really impact much at the time and people had expected so much more. But wasn't this one of the earliest "On Air On Sale" releases? So we weren't quite accustomed to seeing brand new, hyped tracks having to climb to their peaks. I wanna say it was a mid-week release too but I'm not sure.

What an anthem though. Pop perfection, indeed!

I was just about to ask if it was a midweek release?

I think it was both midweek release and on air on sale too

The week it went to #1 in the UK was after her X Factor slot which was at a time when the guests on the results show would typically get a huge boost in the chart and would likely be that weeks #1.

I was obsessed with this when it came out and I'm still as equally into it now wub.gif one of my top 10 favourite songs of all-time.

It will always pain me that it stalled at #2 in the US </3 but at least the UK got it right!

It returned to the #1 again in the new year too didn't it? Two stints at #1 to make up for missing it in the US biggrin.gif

It did

I think that was on the first chart of 2010 after the Xmas campaigns had died down and possibly helped by gift cards too?

At the time did Gaga break a record for having 3 #1s in a calendar year. I can’t think of another female artist who’s done that in the singles chart?
