Charted: 52

Songfacts®:

  • Euphoria is an American teen drama television series that follows a group of high school students as they navigate sex, drugs, love, friendship and trauma. Labrinth composed its score in close collaboration with the show's creator, Sam Levinson.
  • This song went viral after trending on Shazam and TikTok and rose on charts around the world.
  • Labrinth wrote the song halfway through doing the score as he reflected on how his scary and insecure teenage years were like a lot of Euphoria's characters. He told Vulture:

    "I remember seeing Barbie [Ferreira]'s character in the third episode. Online she's kind of famous, but in school nobody knows her name, she's a total geek, nobody gives a s--t about her life. If she were to tell them how many Instagram followers she has, they would lose their minds. I liked the idea of writing a song that expresses that experience of being so powerful but invisible to the people that matter."
  • "Still Don't Know My Name" is a popular song among Euphoria's viewers, but the critics preferred another of Labrinth's tunes for the soundtrack. In 2020 the British singer-songwriter won the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics for "All for Us."
