Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about all the good girls go to hell. By Songfacts®.

Billie Elish grew up in a Christian household, but is not known now for having a faith. Here, she imagines God and the devil teaming up to pour scorn on how humans are messing up planet Earth. Man is such a fool, why are we saving him? Poisoning themselves now Begging for our help, wow Bilie Eilish's producer brother Finneas explained to Vulture.com that he and his sister thought it would be fun to write a song from the perspective of the devil and God talking to each other about climate change saying, "What's going on? Why did they do all of this?"

Hills burn in California My turn to ignore ya Don't say I didn't warn ya Finneas and his sister grew up in California where, according to the producer, they don't as a rule experience extreme weather and "a lot of the time, the natural disasters are not in our backyard." However, Finneas added that in the two years before they wrote this song, "there have been these horrendous wildfires." In 2018, for instance, there were a total of 8,527 fires in California destroying an area of 1,893,913 acres, killing over 100 people. This lyric finds Billie Eilish imagining God shaking his head at humanity reaping the consequences of their ignoring climate change.

The song's cinematic music video depicts Billie Eilish as a fallen angel being cast into what appears to be thick, black oil. We then see her walking through a burning hellscape, which symbolizes the Earth in turmoil because of climate change. Directed by Rich Lee and shot in Los Angeles, the video was released ahead of the September 2019 Global Climate Strike, spearheaded by teen activist Greta Thunberg. In a statement on Instagram, Eilish issued a plea to fans to take action against climate change: "Right now, there are millions of people all over the world begging our leaders to pay attention. Our earth is warming up at an unprecedented rate, ice caps are melting, our oceans are rising, our wildlife is being poisoned and our forests are burning."
