By: Glee original composition
Sung by: New Directions

Place: 2011 Midwest Regional Championship
Episode: Original Song

Loser Like Me is an original song featured in Original Song, the sixteenth episode of Season Two. It is sung by the New Directions with solos from Brittany, Finn, Mercedes, Rachel, and Santana.

The title of the song is a collaboration of words that the New Directions said during a brainstorm session, when talking about bad things Sue has done to them recently and how it made them feel, such as throwing sticks at Mercedes' head, filling Brittany and Santana's lockers with dirt, and asking to get Tina's name changed to "Tina Cohen-Loser" by pretending to be her. Using these words, Will created the title 'Loser Like Me.' The song is about the members of the New Directions, how they have been bullied and treated like outcasts, but how they are using these experiences to rise above the others.

The performance ends with the New Directions throwing red confetti slushies at the crowd, a parody of how they are often slushied. This is one of the two winning original songs, the other being Get It Right (a Rachel solo). Loser Like Me is sometimes known as the "Glee Theme Song" as it describes New Directions as losers and underdogs and what Glee Club and performing is seen as at McKinley.

Rachel:
Yeah, you may think that I'm a zero

Everyone you wanna be,
Probably started off like me

All of the dirt you've been throwing my way
It ain't so hard to take
