"Zombified" is a song by American rock band Falling in Reverse. It was released on January 5, 2022 through Epitaph Records.[1] The song was released as the first single from the band's upcoming EP titled Neon Zombie.[2] The song was again produced by Tyler Smyth and vocalist Ronnie Radke.

Promotion and release[edit]

At the end of 2021, vocalist Ronnie Radke published images through Instagram that indicated that a new song could be coming. On January 4, 2022, the band announced on their social networks that the following day there would be a live broadcast on Ronnie's Twitch channel.[3] The song was released on January 5, 2022, via live stream. It is the first single from their upcoming Neon Zombie EP.[1][2]

Composition and lyrics[edit]

"Zombified" is a song written by Ronnie Radke. It is a song that touches on all his expierences, being portrayed as one of the most hated people in the world. He tries to tell the world that this was a long time ago, and he asks for forgiveness.[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song was directed by Jensen Noen who had already directed the band's previous music videos such as "Popular Monster", "The Drug in Me Is Reimagined" and "I'm Not A Vampire (Revamped)". The film finds the Falling in Reverse crew in the midst of a horror film invasion, first fending off a dystopian world increasingly inhabited by zombies, but that's just the beginning of their worries as more foes enter the fray.[5] The music video reached 1 million views on YouTube in just two days and entered the top 10 trends in the United States.

TikTok controversy[edit]

Just after the release of the song, several people began to show their discontent with the song on the short video platform TikTok. Many complained about the line:

"Oh no they'll never let go,

Of something you said 10 years ago They're canceling you

And they won't stop till everybody's".

Arguing the legal problems that vocalist Ronnie Radke had in the past such as his time in jail. These include, involvement in a murder and the lawsuit for throwing a microphone stand at a concert which hit a girl 13 years old. Others also questioned the vocalist for some of his verses in other songs like in the song "Alone" released in 2013.[6]
