"Ain't It Fun" is a song written by Peter Laughner and Gene O'Connor (known as Cheetah Chrome) and performed by their protopunk band Rocket from the Tombs. The song was first released by O'Connor's later group, The Dead Boys, on their 1978 second studio album We Have Come for Your Children.
The song was later covered by the American rock band Guns N' Roses for their 1993 cover album "The Spaghetti Incident?." It was also released as a single and was included on the Guns N' Roses Greatest Hits compilation in 2004. When Rocket from the Tombs reunited in 2003, they recorded the song and released it on their debut album, Rocket Redux. Rollins Band also covered the song for their album A Nicer Shade of Red. Another cover has been made by Lords of Altamont on their 2011 album "Midnight to 666".
