  • Lead singer Alex Band has said that Adrienne is not a real person. We all have an Adrienne in our lives - someone who is not worth going for who spends your money and uses you, yet you still can't get over them no matter how much you try. >>

  • The video was filmed in an abandoned military base in LA and was directed by Nigel Dick. Alex Band wanted the video to have a "domino effect," which is what you see in the video with various people singing the lyrics and falling down in the end. >>

  • Zach Bratcher from SeattleI wish I knew the name of the girl who started to domino effect. I've been searching for her name for years. As far as I know she's been in one other thing and her first name is apparently "Jazmin."
  • Adrienne from De Pere, WiI can't believe theres a song out there thats called Adrienne thats spelt correctly!!! I agree with the girls comment above me i don't know if it's so great to have a song about you but it's about that. But I love this song.
  • Rocio from Quillota, Chilewell...i love the calling, and i like the song very much
  • Adrienne from Baltimore, MdAt first I was thrilled to see a song title with my name in it (it's not the most popular name out there); now I'm not so sure after reading the lyrics! Oh well, at least my name's spelled right.
