Why Billie Eilish’s “No Time to Die” is the best Bond anthem?
The Bond theme. It’s an iconic part of the James Bond franchise. The biggest star of the day makes a song about the newest James Bond movie, usually to some pretty solid acclaim. Remember Tina Turner’s amazing “Goldeneye” or Paul McCartney’s still great “Live and Let Die”? Sam Smith & Adele won Academy Awards for their respective bond themes.
Now, however, Billie Eilish has entered the chat with her moody & atmospheric “No Time to Die”. After about a million related COVID-19 delays, the movie is set to be released on Oct. 8. Based on early critical reactions, people are feeling pretty good about it. It has an 87% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Daniel Craig is seeing praise for his final turn in the role.
How are people feeling about Eilish’s theme now? Well, let’s take a look at some of our favorite reactions for Billie Eilish’s “No Time to Die” song.

Not only is Eilish’s “No Time to Die” good
The whole soundtrack slaps.
If you know your Oscar's knowledge, you know Billie Eilish will win best song for No Time To Die
It's such a good Bond Theme

Grammys not enough?
Maybe it’s time to give Eilish some Oscar gold?
Hearing No Time To Die on the radio, and pondering which is the worst Bond theme. It's a very strong field. #bbcpm

There have been bad Bond themes as well
Others, however, are not feeling the love.
I’d Makeout with anyone to get a copy of this version of the casino royale theme. pic.twitter.com/jNogTCg714

What’s your fave?
People are also thinking about their own fave Bond themes in the lead-up to No Time to Die.
Has there ever been a more banal and boring James Bond theme song than Billie Eilish’s ‘No time to die’? It just drones on and on and on and on, never even hinting at some emotional take off. Eilish has to be one of the most overrated celebrities of the 21st century.

It’s not that bad
Seriously. It looks like “No Time to Die” may be pretty divisive with Bond fans.
Happy NO TIME TO DIE premiere day!!! I am going to lose my fucking mind the second Billie starts singing the theme song 🤪🤪

To be fair . . .
We all lose our minds when Billie Eilish starts singing.
The opening credits sequence for #NoTimeToDie is one of the best of the entire franchise.
That, paired with the killer title song, could very well make Billie Eilish an Oscar winner. pic.twitter.com/EfptL14DkF

We’ll have to see
But seriously, depending on how the Best Original Song race shapes up? Eilish may walk away with an Oscar.
Going into the midnight screening of #NoTimeToDie, I've just realized that I have listened to Billie Eilish's theme more times than I have seen the film!!!
