"How Could She?" is a track of the Type O Negative album Life Is Killing Me, released in 2003. It contains Zeppelin-like funk grooves and Motorhead-esque thrash part, as well as bluesy solo and psychedelic singing. The recorded laughs are heard in the studio, including a woman laughing, during the first sixteen seconds of the track before the song actually begins. This song is about finding a reason why a female partner doesn't love them anymore and the lyrics list all the female television characters that Pete says they're pretty, such as Wilma Flintstone, Catwoman, Wonder Woman, and Vanna White.
Wilma Flintstone, Marcia Brady, Alice Kramden, Gladys Kravitz, Laverne and Shirley, Jeannie Morticia Adams, Aunt Esther, Sweet Polly Purebread, Natasha, Mrs. MacGillicuddy How could she?

Why don't you love me anymore? I said why? Why don't you love me anymore? Quite upset, angry, just plain annoyed No recourse except for celluloid In my heart, I know you are not real Though in mind, suspect you still can feel Walt Disney or Hanna-Barbera Black or white, stunning Technicolor Warner Brothers and the A.A.P. I've become addicted to TV Crissy Snow, Catwoman, Creepela, Weezie Jefferson, Betty Rubble, Little Cindy Who Penelope Pitstop, Lois Lane, Vanna White, Wonder Woman, Elly May, Maude, Witchiepoo How could she? Why? Why don't you love me anymore? I said why? Why don't you love me anymore? Why? Why don't you love me anymore? I said why? Why don't you love me anymore? How could you? How could you? How could you? How could you?
