She Wants Revenge is an American musical duo, based in San Fernando Valley, California. The group's debut album She Wants Revenge was released in early 2006, with three singles to follow ("These Things," a video featuring Shirley Manson from Garbage, "Out of Control," and "Tear You Apart" for which the video was directed by Joaquin Phoenix). The band has sold more than 300,000 records in the US. The band's second album, This is Forever, was released on October 9, 2007. The group's third album, entitled Valleyheart, was released on May 23, 2011.


Includes the following tropes:

  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: The plot of the music video for "Tear You Apart" is highly evocative of trans panic. Tommy is at first attracted to his prom date Lydia, until he finds out she's... different. While she's clearly trying to hide it, he finds out while making out with her. Despite telling a clearly concerned Lydia that he'd love her no matter what a few seconds ago, he reacts with horror, and immediately tells the other students. This leads to a group of them trying to hunt her down and "show" them what she really is.
  • Intercourse with You: Oh god, in spades!
  • Stalker with a Crush: "Tear You Apart."
  • Something Completely Different: The Up and Down EP is mostly straightforward disco pop.
  • Rule of Sexy: The official/unofficial video for "Take the World."

How well does it match the trope?
