She Hates Me

Album: Come Clean (2001)
Charted: 14 13


  • This song is about a guy who messes up a relationship and now the girl hates him. It was written by Puddle Of Mudd lead singer Wes Scantlin and their guitarist Jimmy Allen. The song quickly became a crowd favorite and a highlight at Puddle Of Mudd's concerts, where the crowd would often join in the chorus.
  • ASCAP certified this as one of the most-played songs of 2003. It somehow appealed to both the women who could relate to the furious feelings toward a guy, and to the many men who have had a once-affectionate girlfriend turn quite bitter.
  • This song made an unflattering appearance in the 2018 episode of The Good Place, "Leap to Faith," where it is played as an instrument of torture in "the bad place" along with "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer."

  • Zero from The Abyss, NjOh, snap, I said "pooped"!

  • Zero from The Abyss, NjIt's also similar to Nirvana's "Polly".
  • Zero from The Abyss, NjIn concert the band would sometimes go into "Summer Days" from the movie Grease while playing this song. Actually that's the first song that pooped out to me when I first heard it, it's been said on some websites that the song "samples" "I Saw Your Mommy".
  • Ryan from Anahola, HiThe rhythm is almost similar to Suicidal Tendencies's "I Saw Your Mommy".
  • Mac from San Jose, CaJoel from Columbia, 1 second the Kurt thing.

    1st time I heard this I thought it was The Offspring cuz the dude that fronts em sounds like Kurt as well.

    The tune really does sounds like a Nirvana rip.
  • Inzain from Moultrie, GaDefinitely not a song for a six year old scott
    but still a great song. if u listen to the edited version on youtube it say she fates me. LOL
  • Scott from West Palm Beach, FlI first heard this song when I bought the CD. It's comical and really makes you feel good! ScaaaRoooo censorship and the radio ... I do however recommend screening music you don't know before blasting it in the car on the way home with your 6 year old child next to you though, LOL!!
  • Sara from Harleysville, Paif you want to know what the songs about just listen to the song it couldn't be anymore clear. good song though!
  • Joel from Columbia, ScThe radio version really annoys the crap outta me.
    Maybe I'm just crazy but sometimes Wesley (Scantlin) sounds a bit too much like Kurt Cobain.
    Still, I would put Puddle on my favorite's list.
  • Culley from Greenwood, InThe song and music video is hilarious!
