About Going Under

"Going Under" is a nu metal song by American rock band Evanescence. Recorded for their debut studio album Fallen (2003), Wind-up Records released it as the album's second single on September 9, 2003. The song was written by Evanescence members Amy Lee, David Hodges and Ben Moody while its production was handled by Dave Fortman. The song contains rock and heavy metal elements and its instrumentation consists of drums and guitars built around Lee's soprano vocals. Lyrically, "Going Under" was written about an emotionally difficult past relationship. It received mostly positive reviews from music critics, most of whom praised its anthemic chorus and Lee's vocal performance. "Going Under" peaked at number five on the US Billboard Alternative Songs chart, charted in the top ten in Brazil, Italy, New Zealand and the UK and the top forty in various other European countries and Australia. It obtained a platinum certification in the latter country by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA).
