"All These Things I Hate (Revolve Around Me)" is a ballad in the glam metal vein,[6] produced by the Welsh heavy metal band Bullet for My Valentine. The song was released as the third single from the band's debut album The Poison, through Sony BMG Recordings on 3 February 2006 in Germany[3] and released in United Kingdom through Visible Noise on 7 February 2006.[7]

The band originally recorded the song on their 2003 Jeff Killed John EP.[8] Stylus Magazine said that the song "doesn't work" on The Poison album because its "quiet/loud dynamic" does not explore the full dynamic.[9] Music Emissions gave the song a very positive review, saying that it was the highlight of an otherwise "gimmicky" album, the song featuring interwoven acoustic guitar lines and harmony vocals (delivered by lead singer Matthew Tuck) during the song's introduction section.[10] Punk News reviewed the song as "a nice respite from the [otherwise] drab" songs on the album, because of its acoustic intro.[11]

Music video[edit]

The music video, directed and enacted by Scott Winig, depicts a series of what seems like predictions made by a young woman. It starts off showing the outside of a motel, and flips inside to show a young couple. The boyfriend leaves the room, walks out onto the driveway, and gets into his car. His girlfriend follows him out shortly after because he forgot his necklace. As soon as he pulls out into the road, he is slammed in to by a truck, thus killing him. This is revealed to be a nightmare, thought up by the girlfriend. These series of events repeat a few times, with minor variations each time. The last time the girlfriend wakes up, the "predictions" of what she thought was going to happen seem to be proven false. One of the final shots is of the girlfriend looking out a window and seeing the truck that would have killed her boyfriend pass by. However, the boyfriend is not there. Between the shots of the couple, there are shots of the band playing in a graveyard and the video ends with Matt Tuck crouching over what seems to be the coffin of the boyfriend.
