"Kill Me" is a song by American rock band The Pretty Reckless, released as a single on December 7, 2012 by Interscope Records. The song was initially intended to serve as the lead single from the band's then-untitled second studio album, as announced by lead singer Taylor Momsen through her Twitter account.[1] However, after The Pretty Reckless moved record labels from Interscope to Razor & Tie, "Kill Me" was left out of the band's second album, Going to Hell (2014), although it was included as a bonus track on the Japanese edition of the album.[2][3]

On December 17, 2012, the track was featured at the end of the final episode of the television series Gossip Girl,[4][5] where Momsen made a guest appearance as her character Jenny Humphrey,[6] having previously left the show in May 2011.[7]
