"Tear You Apart" is the second single released by She Wants Revenge. It appears as the eleventh track on their self-titled debut album She Wants Revenge.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Tear You Apart" was directed by Joaquin Phoenix. It was filmed in a middle school in Hollywood. The dance was held in a gym. The band's HQ was in the ballet studio of the school.

The scene where Lydia runs out is fake—she does not run into a hallway but instead, at the time of production, she ran into an alley.

A note was sent out via MySpace asking for extras. Only a small amount of them were actually highschoolers; the call was for people who were either 15-20 or looked like they were 15-20. No one was paid, and filming was done around 3am the following day.

Appearance in other media[edit]


  • In the music video, Adam and Justin are mentioned as "missing". These are the names of the writers and lead band members.
  • On the Late Show with David Letterman, along with other TV appearances, the chorus lyrics changed from "I want to fucking tear you apart" to "I'd really love to tear you apart."
