Ain't My Bitch is the first song from Metallica's 1996 album "Load". It debuted on the U.S. Mainstream Rock charts at number fifteen.

"Ain't My Bitch" gained media attention and notoriety due to its title. Vocalist/Lyricist James Hetfield later explained that the 'bitch' in the song does not refer to a woman, but acts as a metaphor for a problem. Under this interpretation, the song takes on a decidedly different theme, dealing with a person who harbors no concern for other people's problems.

Upon the album's release in June 1996, "Ain't My Bitch" quickly became a staple in the band's live set, featured regularly during their Poor Touring Me world tour. Lead guitarist Kirk Hammett used a slide for the guitar solo, a first for Metallica and one of the many musical departures found on Load.

The song's demo was named "Bitch" and was recorded on April 6, 1995.
