    You just have to play with it, I did the same thing and cant tell you how it got that way or how I got it untangled. This may help.

    I assume that you have a single speed bike and were able to take the chain completely off. I am intrigued by your description of the chain tangling itself up. In theory, with some patience, you should be able to get it straightened out. Another option is to go to a bike store and purchase a tool to pop one of the rivets out so you can stretch the chain out. They run about $10. You can then untangle it. You can also by a new rivet to reconnect the chain.
