Hate To Feel

  • This is one of the few Alice In Chains songs that Layne Staley wrote completely by himself. It's about how Layne's life problems resulted in him killing the pain with heroin. >>

  • Mike from Atlanta, GaIf you feel like all of their songs are about the effects of Heroin, then you are not even a casual fan. You need to do more research. Mike
  • Brian from Boston, MaWow an Alice in Chains song that is about heroin.I am shocked .Good thing I learned this from Songfacts I would have never guessed what this song was about.Look let me save everyone some time that might look for the meaning of an Alice in Chains song.They are all about heroin.Miserable bastards
  • Gerrit from Spokane, WaThe song also has a lot to do with knowing who you are and growing up. Layne sings that all his life he swore he'd never be like his old man, but looking at himself he sees thats what he really is.
