Frankly, revenge never helps in anything. In the end, you’ll still feel miserable. I always advice those who have been dumped or have ended relationship because of being hurt or betrayed not to revenge. Better forgive, and move on.
But, I still enjoy the song for the sake of it. Not that I have ever or will ever revenge for whatever reason, even unrelated to relationship.
According to Wikipedia, Cantrell wrote this song for that purpose because of the hurtful situation she’s going through. “The lyrics propose that women should take revenge on cheating men by draining them of their available assets, both monetary assets and property. Cantrell has said that she did not particularly care for the song artistically, but the bitter feelings she was experiencing at the time led her to include it on the album anyway.”
The song was released in 2001.
