Yungblud’s “Mars” Lyrics Meaning

Yungblud’s “Mars” is reportedly about a transgender young woman, i.e. a woman who at birth was assigned the male gender. Owing to this, she acts and dresses accordingly. Of course such behavior is sadly derided by many, and as such she faces challenges in school and at home. Thus she fantasizes about getting away, specifically “to California” where such a lifestyle is accepted. And ultimately, the way the term Mars is used in the lyrics is to point to a similar notion, i.e. a hypothetical location whereas those who feel “irrelevant” and “scared as f**k” can live at peace. 

So as has been his norm, Yungblud is acting as a social activist. And not only is he defending the trans community but also those who are racially oppressed and advocate climate change. Those are the type of people he envisions being beside him and other likeminded individuals on “Mars”.

This song came out via Locomotion Records and Interscope Records on the 27th of November 2020. Yungblud had first teased it a couple of days earlier, on 25 November, via his Instagram account. It is the fourth single from Yungblud’s 2020 album entitled Weird!

Yungblud wrote “Mars” along with Matt Schwartz. The singer’s inspiration is based on a real-life story in which one of his performances helped a transgender finally be accepted by his/her parents.

“Mars” was produced by the grouping of the following:

  • Zakk Cervini
  • Mike Crossey
  • Omer Fedi
  • Chris Greatti

    Hey, I would like to let you know that when a person is transgender, you should address them according to the gender they identify as. So it wouldn’t be s/he, it’s she, and her pronouns are she/her as long as she identifies with them. Also, if you could correct a sentence, a transgender person doesn’t “rather” be a female or a male, but they are one, although their body doesn’t match with their gender. I hope you can correct it, have a good day!

      👆🏻WHAT THEY SAID 👆🏻
      📣 LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE WHO SAY “I didn’t know “ after being repeatedly corrected and then claim ignorance every time.📣
      **2 seconds later continues to use the wrong pronouns because they are that shltty of a human being and have little to no respect for anyone.

        If your born with genitals, your a man.
        She was prolly assigned male gender, because she had genitals. Years ago this person was called hermaphrodite

      ^^ I was about to say this. Also, instead of “transgenders,” phrasing it as “the trans community” would be a little better!

      Yesssss! I was about to write that a transgender girl isn’t “a male that wants to be a female”, that’s honestly a very disrespectful and just really bad way to put it, and it really doesn’t depict the trans community right and transgender people right! 🙂

    I agree with this. My bestfriend is a trans male his girlfriend is a trans female and I love them very much. I am a demiboy (someone who leans more towards boy but not completely) and so I can relate. People are people and should be respected.

    Hi,
    Could you please edit this? Another thing I haven’t seen said is transgender men aren’t males dressing as females, they are males stuck in the wrong body. The way this is written sounds like being trans is an option, and it’s not. Thanks 🙂

    Its January and this article still hasn’t been edited – I’m going to re-voice the concern of many commenters above. The language in this article is quite offensive to trans people especially when considering it is written about such a beautiful, powerful song. You can’t call trans people “transgenders” in the same way you shouldn’t go around referring to the black community as ‘the blacks”. A trans woman is also a woman, and should be referred to as such, just like Yungblud does in his song.

      Thanks for drawing our attention to this. We have finally made some modifications to the article. And we are sorry for the offensive nature of the article’s initial language. Kindly go through the edited version and let us know if it still requires changes. Thanks.

        you really said “A transgender”.- That language is also offensive and harmful, please put a transgender person or something of that nature

    Wow 💔 Dom really knows how to tap into people’s emotions. His music is amazing

    Some of the wording in this article is just … not cool. “-helped a transgender”? Helped a member of the trans community. Calling is ‘a transgender’ is just straight up offensive.
