"She Hates Me", sometimes colloquially referred to as "She Fucking Hates Me", is a song by the band Puddle of Mudd. It was written in 1993 and released in 2002. It continued the group's popularity on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 13, though not as successful as the number five hit "Blurry". It also topped the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for one week in October.[5] The popularity of "She Hates Me" made it become Puddle of Mudd's second single to sell over 500,000 copies in the United States, following "Blurry".[6] The song peaked at number 14 in the UK Singles Chart,[7] making it the group's third top 20 hit and won a 2004 ASCAP Pop Music Award.[8]

ContentEdit

Jimmy Allen had just ended a relationship with a significant other, and was inspired to write a song to reflect his former girlfriend's anger. The song combines upbeat music with lyrics about the break-up. The chord progression is similar to the main chord progression in Suicidal Tendencies' "I Saw Your Mommy," which had led to accusations that Puddle of Mudd plagiarized the song.[9]

In the album's insert is a photocopy of each song's original hand written lyrics, which displays the original name of the song: "She Fucking Hates Me". The title was changed to make it more acceptable to the public decorum, though the line is still heard in its original form in the unedited version of the song.
