“Bring Me to Life” is a song by American band Evanescence. It was released on April 22, 2003, as the first single from their debut studio album, Fallen, and as the lead single for the film Daredevil. It was written by Amy Lee and Ben Moody. It features guest vocals from Paul McCoy of 12 Stones. It is the band’s most successful single, and has peaked within the charts of more than 15 countries internationally, and won Best Hard Rock Performance at the 46th Grammy Awards.

It was released on April 22, 2003, as the first single from their debut album, Fallen. The album’s opening track, “Going Under”, was initially planned to be the first single, however, the release of the Daredevil soundtrack impacted the decision to release it as the album’s second single. The single includes “Farther Away” as a B-side and refers to it as the album version, however, the track order of Fallen was not finalized at the time of its release, and the track was eventually dropped from the album. The first pressing of the Australian single contained the track “Missing” as a B-side, but was mysteriously dropped from later pressings, and was eventually released as a bonus track on the band’s first live album, Anywhere but Home.

Earlier versions of “Bring Me to Life” were recorded and released as demos before Fallen’s release, both containing a considerably different sound, featuring more industrial pieces of music and the absence of Paul McCoy’s guest vocals. An acoustic version was recorded and released on the Bring Me To Life DVD.
