"Remember Me" is the second single from the rock band Hoobastank, in the self-titled debut album. It was released as a single in 2002 following the successful first single "Crawling in the Dark.[1] however Remember Me was a downside from Crawling in the Dark and reached a disappointing #23 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart and did not chart on the Billboard Hot 100, leading some to label Hoobastank as a One hit wonder, the band later proved this wrong with the success of the next single, "Running Away".

There are 2 versions of the song, the album version which includes a long intro and the video version with a short guitar intro.

Music video and song meaning[edit]

The music video features Hoobastank performing in front of a group of high school students sitting in desks working in a football field. Throughout the music video, various students are shown in a yearbook. The music video was directed by Marc Webb.

The song is about a fake friend who Hoobastank's vocalist Doug Robb had during high school. Doug Robb said that he had his own group of friends and also said that if he went back to high school now, his teachers wouldn't recognize him. The song "Remember Me" is about somebody who won't hang out with you, but when you become famous, would definitely hang out with you.[2]
