"URL Badman" was written by Allen in response to criticism sparked by her comeback song "Hard Out Here". Some critics accused the singer of being misogynistic after the track, along with its accompanying music video, arrived in late 2013.

"I wrote that after I put out the video for 'Hard Out Here' and everyone said I was racist," she said in an interview with Rolling Stone. "I was really alarmed by that reaction. I stand by that video, and I know what my intention was, and I'm sorry that people interpreted it in a different way."

"A lot of that negative stuff came from females and the feminist blogger scene. What really pissed me off was the misogynistic, hipster, male bloggers that went after me in a completely different way. And I just thought, 'F**k you, I'm going to write a song about you,' " she added.
