In this song, Puddle Of Mudd lead singer Wes Scantlin is giving his girl the boot. She has him coming apart at the seams, and he can't take it any more.
The song is about a real person, although it's infused with Puddle Of Mudd's trademark anger. In a Songfacts interview with Scantlin
, he explained: "'Heel Over Head' is really cool. I wrote that when I first got to LA. There was this Russian girl, Elena, and she would come by the house. She was really good friends with Rick Rubin. She'd come by and say, 'Wesley, want to smoke some greeenge
?' I was telling her to call weed 'Grinch,' because it's green, but she couldn't say it correctly. She would come by and tease me and be flirting with me... and she would never let it totally go down. I wrote that song completely about her."
