The women of Saturday Night Live released their latest anthem this weekend, this time taking on the recent string of sexual assault allegations with “Welcome to Hell.”

Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon and the other female stars of SNL have made numerous music video parodies in recent years, including “First Got Horny 2 U,” “Back Home Ballers,” and “(Do It on My) Twin Bed.”

In “Welcome to Hell,” the ladies, joined by host Saoirse Ronan, sang a feminist anthem about how sexual predators have ruined everything for women since day one.

“Now House of Cards is ruined,” Ronan sang, in reference to Kevin Spacey, “and that really sucks. Well here’s a list of stuff that’s ruined for us: parking, and walking, and Uber, and ponytails, and bathrobes, and night time, and drinking, and hotels, and vans.”
