I'm gonna be the buzzkill and say that the ableist slur in the original makes it unlistenable

And what would that ableist slur be ? I'm reading the lyrics and I can't find it.

Based on this MetaTalk, I’m going to guess the slur is “duh”.

I have mixed feelings about Eilish, in part because this song squicked me out when I first heard it. (Yes, I know it’s intended as satire.) The only context I can hear it in and not be grossed out is in IG stories by drag kings. They’re spoofing masculinity in an over-the-top way that makes some of the yucky lines less gross.

I know there's a difference between daydreaming and putting it out as a Top 40 hit, but Bad Guy makes perfect sense to me as something coming from a 17-year-old because it's a lot like the things I thought about as a teenager.

(In that vein, it reminds me of Claudine at School by Colette - there's a lot of stuff that feels like it was thrown in for the male gaze, but overall, it's one of the best depictions I've seen of the teenage girl experience - the self-aggrandizement, the sexual fantasies, the delight in taking advantage of attention from grown men while simultaneously feeling creeped out by it.)
