Bitches Broken Hearts (stylized in all lowercase) is a song recorded by Billie Eilish. The song was written by Eilish, Emmit Fenn, and Finneas O'Connell; the latter two also produced it. Originally released via SoundCloud on November 10, 2017, it was released as a single on all digital platforms on March 30, 2018. The song was released on a 7-inch vinyl as the B-Side to her single "You Should See Me in a Crown". It was also included on the expanded edition of Eilish's debut EP, Don't Smile at Me (2017), as well as on a re-issue of her first studio album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (2019).

The lyrics of "Bitches Broken Hearts" address the aftermath of a breakup. It is her first and, as of 2020, only song to feature vulgar word; "bitches", as appears in its title, is sung for one time across the song. The song received mainly positive reviews from music critics, several of whom praised the music and lyrics. It was certified platinum in the United States and Canada by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Music Canada (MC), respectively.
