Don't Hate Me featured the first use of saxophone in the music of Porcupine Tree, courtesy of Theo Travis.
The song was performed live regularly in 1999 and made only rare appearances in the set in 2000 and 2001. It was also performed regularly during the second leg of the Deadwing tour in 2005. A live recording of such performance was released on the DVD "Arriving Somewhere". During live performances Theo Travis's flute and saxophone solos have been replaced by Richard Barbieri's keyboard and Steven Wilson guitar solos respectively.
The song was re-recorded by Steven Wilson for the 4 1/2 EP with his 2015 live band and features Ninet Tayeb singing the chorus
