  • Lyrics
  • This song was written by 311 lead singer Nick Hexum, who says it's about falling for the wrong person. "I think many times, people in general - and me, especially - find ourselves attracted to people who are not good for us," he said in his Songfacts interview. "We know it, but we can't resist. That's what 'Beautiful Disaster' is."
  • The video was directed by the New York-based photographer/filmmaker Carter B. Smith, who also did the Jane's Addiction clip for "Jane Says."
