The Women Of ‘SNL’ Have Taken On The Post-Weinstein Era With A Perfect Pop Song

"Welcome to hell"

The female cast members of Saturday Night Live have delivered the tune of 2017, taking on the post-Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandals with a catchy bubblegum pop song titled ‘Welcome to Hell’.

The sketch — which is pitched at men who only now seem to be figuring out that women have been harassed and abused since literally forever —  features Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Melissa Villaseñor, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant and guest host Saoirse Ronan as a Spice Girls-inspired girl group. Only they’re not really a girl group. They just just travel together for safety.

“All these big, cool, powerful guys are turning out to be, what’s the word? Habitual predators,” the song begins. “And it’s like dang, is this the world now?”

“But here’s a little secret that every girl knows: this been the damn world.”

The song goes on to list the things that predatory men have ruined for women, including “walking”, “bathrobes”, “drinking” and “vans” (“nothing good ever happens in a van”).
