"I Hate Myself for Loving You" is a song by American rock band Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, released as the lead single from their sixth studio album, Up Your Alley (1988). The song reached number eight on the US Billboard Hot 100, Jett's third single to reach the top 10, and was her first since "Crimson and Clover" in 1982.

Midnight, gettin' uptight, where are you? You said you'd meet me, now it's quarter to two I know I'm hangin' but I'm still wantin' you Hey Jack, it's a fact they're talkin' in town I turn my back and you're messin' around I'm not really jealous, don't like lookin' like a clown I think of you ev'ry night and day You took my heart then you took my pride away I hate myself for loving you Can't break free from the things that you do I wanna walk but I run back to you That's why I hate myself for loving you Ow! Uh Daylight, spent the night without you But I've been dreamin' 'bout the lovin' you do I'm over being angry 'bout the hell you put me through Hey, man, bet you can treat me right You just don't know what you was missin' last night I wanna see you begging, say forget it just for spite I think of you ev'ry night and day You took my heart and you took my pride away I hate myself for loving you Can't break free from the the things that you do I wanna walk but I run back to you That's why I hate myself for loving you Ow!
