"Abuse Me" was the second single from Silverchair's second album, Freak Show. In the United States, Sony chose "Abuse Me" as the first single from "Freak Show" despite protests by the bands manager. "Freak" was the Australian lead single and the preferred lead single from the album. It was also released on their The Best of Volume 1.

The single contained the b-side "Undecided," (not to be confused with Undecided from Frogstomp) a Masters Apprentices cover, which featured Deniz Tek of Radio Birdman playing lead guitar. Also included on the single was a remix of "Freak" produced by Paul Mac, this marked the first time that Daniel Johns and Paul Mac worked together.
