“Yeah Right” by Evanescence

Evanescence’s “Yeah Right” is a bit of a complex song. On the surface, it has been interpreted as Evanescence’s criticism of the music industry. The title, “yeah right”, is actually a sarcastic affirmation. And the way the singer uses it basically points to the idea of involvement in the industry not being all it’s cracked up to be. But said vocalist, Amy Lee, has gone to further elaborate that this track is not an exercise in criticizing the music-industrial complex per se. Rather it is speaking to her own personal experiences as a successful musician.

And in short, what its main theme actually centers on is the notion that haters are an ever-present part of musical success stories. So tying all of this together, the gripe that Evanescence has with being achieved musicians is pertaining not only to their employers. Rather along with being famous also comes those who pray for your downfall.

BMG released this track on December 4th, 2020. It is the fourth single from Evanescence’s fifth-studio album. Said album is titled “The Bitter Truth”.

“Yeah Right” was co-written by Evanescence’s lead singer, Lee. She wrote it alongside the band’s drummer, Will Hunt. And the track was produced by Nick Raskulinecz.
