Three Days Grace: I Hate Everything About You Meaning
Song Released: 2003
I Hate Everything About You Lyrics
After every hit we take
Every feeling that I get
But I haven’t missed you yet
Every roommate kept awake
By every sigh and scream we make
All the feelings that I get
But I still don't miss you yet
Only when I...

Actually, the band explains the meaning behind this song on their website. Basically, it's about how you hate something, but at the same time you keep coming back to it, and letting it take over you, whether it's drugs, or a relationship, or whatever.

I went to school with the drummer neil sanderson (same last name as me too) in peterborough, ontario, canada and the rest of the band is from a little town called norwood which is about 20 minutes away. It is my understanding that every song on this particular album aludes to people that they went to school with. This song is about about a girl he hates and can't stand, but he loves her at the same time because she's so familiar. These guys aren't singing about hard drugs. It ain't their bag, baby.

I don't think this song is about any kind of pedofelia. My interpretation was that this song was about a drug addiction. Possibly methamphetamine, where the user hates everything about the drug and what it does to them, but still loves it for some reason (addiction). Being a former meth user, this song makes me think about my methamphetamine addiction and how it caused me so many problems and ruined my life, but I loved it throughout the devastation that it caused with my family, my friends, my emotions, and my appearance.

That makes me think of a parent who could be violent, Abusive,...... And destroy their kid, and the kids cannot totally hate him because that´s still his father/mother and he suffers. Obviously, i think the interpretation depends of your story, when you listen to it, you think to one particular person or maybe thing that you know, like me for violent parent, so everyone is right and wrong at the same time ;)

Okay, there are two ways you could interpret this.
Way 1: He started hooking up with this girl that he didn't know he couldn't stand, a drunk mistake. He doesn't know why he keeps going back to her, but he does and when he thinks about her, he realizes he hates her.After they hook up, he asks himself "Why?"
Way 2: He is on drugs or a substance and is referring to it as though it were a person. He is asking himself why he takes this substance he is addicted to if he hates it, and he wants to stop.
These are probably the ways most people interpret the song also, so sorry for the similarities! I <3 Three Days Grace!!

I feel that its about a heroin addiction, where it affects him in a negative way, which he cannot stand, but has become so dependant on the high that the drug gives him, that he cannot stay away from it, as drugs such as this are highly addictive substances.

I think it is about relation ships to peaple parrents and close friends

its about all the drugs that he has taken and telling everybody that he hates all the drugs that he takes but he loves the side affects of it.

The song is about Adam(Lead singer)'s encounters with drug addiction and abuse. Being the lyrical genius that he is, he cleverly makes it seem like the song is about a bad breakup to attract the common crowd but a closer look at the lyrics reveals that it has nothing to do at all with a girl. Whenever Adam uses a word like "we"("Every time we lie awake, After every hit we take"), it's because he's showing how he and the drugs have almost become one united being. Adam's bouts with drug addiction are referenced and the meaning of many of the bands songs like "Animal I Have Become", "World So Cold", "Break" and Over and Over(which is written similarly to this song making it sound like a girl he's writing about). Adam has been damaged so much by the drugs that he has had to leave the band on their current tour for medical help and has had to leave before for rehabbing.

It is just about how a sweet relationship truns into break . And I think it is too emotional feelings of a person whose heart has broken down . And drug addiction is not its main theme . Logically a person take drug emotionally when something bad hit his or her life . So the song is too logical, modern. It is not beyond reality.

IT NOT ABOUT DRUGS!!! "only when you stop to think about me do you know" DRUGS can't think!! But, humans, that is a different story. Its probaly about an ex that broke up with him, and they still ove each other. XD

I honestly think this song has multiple meanings to it, whether it's a relationship with family, your boyfriend/girlfriend, or even a friend.
In my point of view, this song is telling me about all those jerks who back stabbed and betrayed me because I wasnt popular or "good enough" for them. They were all girls, too. :/ I'm basically the only girl in my school who can't get along with other girls very well because a lot of them betrayed me when we were friends, and yet I still wanna be their friend. :(
Betrayal breaks the heart and is nothing by knives in my back.
It's just my opinion, but this song could be about a relationship. Not sure. :-/

If you watch the official music video, it is obvious that this song is about abusive relationships. These relationships could be between lovers or even parent-child relationships. This song speaks of the abuse and how we seem to not be able to leave "why do I love you?".

about hating other who abuse, use, betray, ECT. and just wanting to say it to them.
