Puddle of Mudd were formed in Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.,in 1993 by Wes Scantlin (vocals,) Jimmy Allen (lead guitar,) Sean Salmmon (bass,) and Kenny Birkitt (drums,) they used to practice next to the ‘Missouri River Levee,’ which inspired the bands name, Scantlin is the groups one constant. It would be a further eight years before Scantlin would get his big break, after Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit heard a demo tape, and helped him put together a new band.
‘She Hates Me’ had been written back in 1993 by Scantlin, and the bands original lead guitarist Jimmy Allen, who had left the group in 1997.Allen was inspired to write the lyrics after splitting with his girlfriend, who parted from him, on not very good terms.The song is filed under the ‘Post Grunge’ genre, and is very much in the style of ‘Nirvana.’ There have been accusations made that the song is a rip off of the 1993 song from the band ‘Suicidal Tendencies” track ‘I Saw Your Mommy.’ The chords and the medley of the song are also very similar to ‘Summer Nights,’ from the film ‘Grease,’ and sometimes at gigs the band perform the two songs as a medley.
‘Met a girl, thought she was grand, fell in love, found out first hand.’
