General Information

Never Again is a song title revealed by Will Hunt in a interview with DRUM! Magazine during the Evanescence era:

Vin1.jpg His luck changed when Hunt was called to rejoin Evanescence after Amy Lee had finished her time off. He found them more open than ever to what he could offer. "Amy had been writing with the two other guys," he recalls. "Sometimes we had sessions together with all of us. I was just playing how I wanted to play and seeing where it would go. We came in with riffs and things, and it was like, 'Man, I don't know if Amy's going to go for this. It might be too much.' Like there's a song on this record called 'Never Again' that's super heavy. I thought for sure she was going to go, 'That's too much.' But she embraced it, although if she'd said 'I don't feel that,' I wouldn't have taken it as an insult. I would have said, 'Let me try something else.'"[1] Vin2.jpg

It is possible that the song was renamed/under a working title or Will messed it up with the title and actually referred to Never Go Back.

Another theory is that Never Again is one of two songs that were combined together to make Erase This.[note 1] Note that Amy stated that the band re-entered the studio[note 2] with Nick Raskulinecz with 19 songs,[2] and only 16 were recorded on the final album.


Studio versions:

Never Again [Demo]


  1. In a live Q&A with Billboard in October 2011, Amy explained: "Nick had this awesome crazy idea of combining like two separate songs that we had that were sort of like, they both had awesome parts but weren’t awesome completed songs. So we took like the awesome verse of one and the awesome chorus of another and smash them together. I actually think that part of us really cool about the song for me is the feeling of the shift between the verse and the chorus because they didn’t originally belong together."
  2. The band had previously worked on experimental songs with Steve Lillywhite from February to April 2010, but the material was scrapped by the label.
