"Fallin' (Adrenaline)",[2] originally titled "Fallin'",[3] is a song by American boy band Why Don't We. It was released on September 29, 2020, as the lead single from their second studio album The Good Times and the Bad Ones. It was the first song that the band released after their eight-month hiatus that began in early 2020. The song debuted and peaked at number 37 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming the band's first entry. The song samples "Black Skinhead" by Kanye West, from his 2013 album, Yeezus.[3]

Aside from the original song, various versions and remixes were later released. A live version, an acoustic version, and remixes by DJs Goldhouse, Vion Konger, James Hype, and Taska Black were released. South Korean boy group AB6IX released a remix of "Fallin' (Adrenaline)" on January 7, 2021.[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video was uploaded on September 29, 2020. The visual depicts all five members performing on a drenched stage, sifting through rushing water. The video is reminiscent of action films, with the members singing from a cell tower that is soon to be struck by lightning, or atop a flipped car in a junkyard or even floating mid-air. Lastly, the group joins together in one of the closing scenes, emulating the 1974 album cover of Queen's Queen II — with band member Avery's arms crossed across his chest, surrounded by his fellow bandmates.[5]
