"Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" is a song by the rock band Fuel, released as the first single from their second album Something Like Human. The song has surpassed "Shimmer" to be Fuel's biggest hit to date. The single was #1 for 12 weeks on the U.S. Modern Rock Tracks chart and is the band's most successful song to date. An acoustic version is a bonus track on the special edition. It also hit #2 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, also their highest charting single on the chart.
The song was also Billboard magazine's #5 Rock Song of the Decade according to their Best of the 2000s Rock Songs chart.
In 2013 "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" became the No.6 Alternative Rock song of the past 25 years according to Billboard's Alternative Chart 25th Anniversary: Top 100 Songs.
The string section featured on the electric version was arranged by David Campbell.
Chris Daughtry performed this song on American Idol as a contestant in early 2006, which was during the period after longtime singer/guitarist Brett Scallions had left the group, prompting Fuel bassist Jeff Abercrombie and guitarist/songwriter Carl Bell to publicly ask Daughtry to be their new lead singer on the television show Extra. On the show Abercrombie stated "Chris, if you are watching, we've talked about this before, and if you want to entertain it again we'll take it and go..." Daughtry, although flattered, eventually declined the offer, opting to form his own band, Daughtry, instead.
The song appears on the game Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol Encore.
In the music video "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)", the red car is a 1971 Buick Riviera.
