This is one of my favorite songs.
Carmen Otero
I love how this song words are powerful and it inspired a girl to make a video against bullying, so every time I listen to this song I feel inspired too!

Katy Perry is an extremely talented musician with a very fun and upbeat style of music.

Very catchy tune. My 5 yr old daughter and I enjoy the song. I also like the message it delivers.

This is a decent song. It is very on-trend with the pop music that is out nowadays, and very within the vein of KP's 'empowerment anthems'. It kind of sounds like something that was left off of Teenage Dream. I can see that this was a song made to be put in some athletic commercial, one of the leading songs for the Olympics (and possibly World Cup) or any sporting event, due to the stomping mid-tempo beat and the sort of shout-heavy chorus. It is just kind of weird that there are so many borrowed quotes in one song (Eye of the Tiger, I Am Woman, Staying Alive, Muhammad Ali), and rhyming cliches (I went from zero / to my own hero). And upon release there was already controversey that this song relates heavily to Brave by Sara Bareilles. I can see this song being number one, but it lacks substance for me. Apparently Katy Perry is trying to come 'darker' with this album, but if Roar is any indication of what is to come, it really just sounds like a lackluster part two to Teenage Dream, or maybe its B-side. Also, the album art is very Lisa Frank-ish.

A great anthem by Katy! Always love her songs and this one is just as catchy as the rest so I always sing along.

As far as top ten pop chanteuses go Katy Perry fits the bill for unoffensive mass pop pablum. However everything about this "song" with regurgitated lyrics ("eye of the tiger..' really?) and the inane supposition that she is being held back or down by someone or something, comes off as ersatz suffragette. The lyrics are sparse and infantile and the dragging pulsing synth that leads to the chorus aggravates more than inspire. This is a B-oh-oh-oh-oh-re even by Katy Perry standards.

Had to buy next day. Cannot claim to be Katy's biggest fan, but enjoy a few of her songs; now this one is my favorite! 😄

I love Katy Perry. Her style is usually unique, fun, and interesting. This song is boring, hear-it-before and annoying. Makes me worry about the album as a whole, which is why I didn't pre-order it, and wonder if maybe she shouldn't have chosen another release to announce it. This just has the feel of a B side. I think she can do better.
