"I Hate Myself for Loving You" is a 1988 song from Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and the first single from the album Up Your Alley. The song reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100,[1] Jett's third single to reach the Top 10, but her first since "Crimson and Clover" in 1982. Former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor played the guitar solo in the song.[2]

One of the backing vocalists featured on the Up Your Alley album was Louie Merlino, later the founder of the band Beggars & Thieves. Merlino did backing vocals on countless songs that were written or co-written by Desmond Child. When Las Vegas, Nevada-based band Sin City Sinners has Merlino singing with them, it is not uncommon for them to cover this song.

For this song, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts received a nomination at the 31st Grammy Awards for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.

The single charted number 39 on rock digital songs in Sep 10, 2011.
