"You" also known as "Fuck You" is a song by American rock band Candlebox and the second single from their eponymous debut album. It is one of the band's most well known songs, peaking at #78 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached #6 and #18, on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks and Modern Rock Tracks charts, respectively.

Music video[edit]

There are two versions to the "You" video. One was directed by Samuel Bayer and shows a live performance of the band in a studio with various dark imagery. This is the studio version of the song. The second version is a live performance cut into a music video format. It is very similar to Pearl Jam's "Even Flow" video. The audio is noticeably heavier as are Kevin Martin's vocals.[1][2][3]
