"Caught Out There" is a song by American singer Kelis from her debut studio album, Kaleidoscope (1999). Written and produced by The Neptunes, the song was released as the album's lead single in the United States on September 20, 1999, and in Europe on January 21, 2000. It peaked at number 54 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Caught Out There" fared better outside the United States, reaching the top 10 in Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

The song was used on MuchMusic's Shortest Weddings special. In 2009 the signature yell "I hate you so much right now" was used in the British children's television sitcom Hotel Trubble. The aforementioned signature yell was used in the Daria episode "Partner's Complaint", first aired February 25, 2000. It was also used in BBC3's Most Annoying People 2010, under Tony Blair (11 on the list). In 2011 the yell was used in a Calvin Klein ad for CK One. In 2010, the line "look, I found her red coat" was sampled extensively in the James Blake song "CMYK". Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes said in an interview that the instrumental track was originally meant for rapper Busta Rhymes, who rejected it.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Caught Out There" was directed by Hype Williams.[2] In the video, Kelis, in her technicolor spiral afro, blond, gold, orange, red, and fuchsia hair, starts in a confessional style, before opening to the chorus where she rips up the living room. Afterwards, Kelis and a group of fed-up women boycott and picket men. Finally, as she sings, "Got something for y'all", a gun cock is heard and the video finishes by alluding to her exacting revenge for her former lover's infidelity.
