Eleanor Goodman of TeamRock described it as "[t]he most metal track on the album, with [a] distinctive Faith No More-influenced cheerleader chorus."

- ↑ Mack, Emmy (13 July 2015). Bring Me The Horizon Bring The Rock With Monster New ‘Happy Song’. “Happy Song is a throbbing, chugging rock belter, more Royal Blood than Sempiternal, laced with a Pink Floydian style children’s choir and a car radio-friendly chorus. ... Bring Me The Horizon’s transition from classic metalcore to something more commercial-sounding is no doubt going to cause growing pains for plenty of their core fanbase [and] open them up to a whole new legion of fans across the entire planet, who will hear this song played on mainstream radio.”
