Original short description: "2019 song by Billie Eilish"

Template:Mergeto Template:Infobox song "!!!!!!!" is a track by American singer Billie Eilish from her debut studio album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. The track was written by Eilish and her brother Finneas O'Connell, with the latter producing the track. The track was made as a joke preceding the track "Bad Guy", and charted at number 79 on the Canadian Hot 100.

Background

"!!!!!!!" is a short intro in which Eilish slurps saliva from her Invisalign aligners and says that "this is the album," before she and her brother Finneas start laughing hysterically.[1] The intro segues straight into "Bad Guy". The two tracks were originally going to be mixed as one but were made into two separate songs. "Initially, we had that Invisalign twist at the beginning of 'bad guy, then we came to our senses and realized that the joke would get old pretty fast, so we cut it into two separate songs."[2]

Finneas explained that it served to "find a sense of humor" amidst the "heaviness" of the album.[3] In an interview with MTV, Finneas states: "That little clip of us just cracking up, it made us laugh so hard. I just thought if we could start a really dark album with a moment of levity and light — not taking ourselves too seriously — it would make the rest of the album much more impactful for people."[2]
