"Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love" is a song by Van Halen, from their 1978 eponymous debut album.

When Eddie Van Halen originally wrote the song a year before the album was released, he did not consider it good enough to show his bandmates.[2]

This song is also one of the few David Lee Roth-era songs that onetime replacement Sammy Hagar was willing to sing in concert when he joined the band in the mid-80's.[2]
