Bad Counter Spell is the fourth of eleven songs featured in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks. Twilight Sparkle writes and sings the song in hopes of using it to break the Dazzlings' spell on everyone at Canterlot High School, but its off-key vocals and questionable lyrics have little magical effect. The first portion of this song is usually cut when the film is aired on the Discovery Family channel to allow the 90-minute-with-commercials airtime.
Prior to the film's release, Meghan McCarthy teased on Twitter that the song was the "best worst" song that she and Daniel Ingram had ever written; Ingram later added that the song was a "masterpiece-of-cr*p".
