"Fine Again" is the American debut single by South African band Seether, from the album Fragile (which was released when Seether were still going by the name "Saron Gas"). It was also later included on the 5 Songs EP, and it is the third track on their album Disclaimer.

During live shows, Shaun Morgan has been known to dedicate the song to Dave Williams of Drowning Pool as well as Dimebag Darrell of Pantera.

The meaning of the song is how you can be fine again after a breakup in a relationship. Shaun Morgan wrote this song when his parents got divorced.

Music video[edit]

The video for the song, directed by Paul Fedor, features the band playing on a soundstage while three walls behind them display filmstrip slides of people holding opaque rectangles with phrases depicting their inner feelings on them explaining the reason why they feel down, and broken hearted. Seether arranged for the concept to be implemented on the cover art to Disclaimer. Ten different versions of the album were released, each featuring a photo of a person from the video. According to bassist Dale Stewart:

Seether came up with the idea of the people baring their souls and holding up the signs and we thought it was a good concept. It's kind of like a thread that runs through the whole album, the fragility, or whatever you want to call it, you know in people. People are always screwed up about something. It doesn't matter if they act like they're not as if they're alright. So therefore, there are times where everybody feels a broken heart.[1]

Appearances[edit]

"Fine Again" was featured on the 2002 video game Madden 2003, as well as Nintendo's 1080° Avalanche.
