"She Loves Me Not" is the first single from rock band Papa Roach's third studio album, Lovehatetragedy, and fourth released single in total. Originally written as part of a five-track promo and demo CD funded by Warner Bros. Records in 1999, "She Loves Me Not" was re-recorded and improved for its new release in 2002. It was left off their first album, Infest (2000), because the band thought the song was too rock-oriented.[citation needed] The song appeared in the popular soundtrack for the game NHL 2003. The song is one of the few songs from Lovehatetragedy featuring Jacoby Shaddix rapping, a style that the band had less focus on the album.

Music video[edit]

The video for "She Loves Me Not" shows the band playing in a run down theme park which people are using as a social area. The content is mostly performance based with cuts to people in the park who are vandalising it, fighting, etc. It was directed by David Meyers.

At three points in the video, a person appears out of nowhere in front of the camera for a single frame, similar to methods used in subliminal messaging. The first two appearances are the same man with his face painted like a skull appearing when Jacoby finishes the lines "Will this be an amputation?" in the first verse (0:34) and "I'm the jerk" in the first chorus. The last person is a woman with red and black hair and feather scarves appearing at about 2:08, the same woman appears watching the sumo wrestlers at about 1:10. Other strange single frame appearances are commonplace throughout the video, including two ghostly figures on the bottom left of the frame at 0:26 and 1:05. (These may also be the ghostly figures at appear in the background at 2:20). Another figure appears at 2:30 on the right side of the tree then vanishes. Or, at about 3:07, when the band plays and dances, you can see a white guy dancing with them. This occurs again at about 3:31, right after the song ends.
