Nothing Can Stop Us is the third single by Saint Etienne. Released by Heavenly Records in 1991, it is the first release to feature Sarah Cracknell, who would continue to front the band from this release on. "Nothing Can Stop Us" reached the number one spot on the American dance charts for one week. The song is based on a looped sample from Dusty Springfield's recording of "I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face".

"Nothing Can Stop Us" was released as a double A side with "Speedwell". As such, "Speedwell" takes lead track duty on the remix 12" single with the Flying Mix and Project Mix.

The American remixes were done by the Masters At Work team of Kenny "Dope" Gonzales and Little Louie Vega.

In 1994, Saint Etienne produced a new version of the song for Kylie Minogue, which was released as a b-side on her single "Confide in Me".
