"Can't Get Enough" is a song by English supergroup Bad Company. It is their biggest-hit and is considered their most popular song which is from their 1974 self-titled debut album. As a single, this song reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and #1 on Cashbox magazine's Top 100 Singles chart. The song is also played on classic rock stations for radio frequently.[2]

The song is credited to guitarist Mick Ralphs, who tuned his guitar in the open-C tuning C-C-G-C-E-C. Ralphs stated that "It never really sounds right in standard tuning. It needs the open C to have that ring."[3]

In 1990 the song was used in a Tony Scott-directed European Levi's commercial titled "Beach". The song also features in the film "What the Bleep Do We Know!?" (2004).

The song was made available to download on November 30, 2010 for use in the Rock Band 3 music gaming platform in both Basic rhythm, and PRO mode which allows use of a real guitar / bass guitar, and MIDI compatible electronic drum kits / keyboards in addition to vocals.

The song was featured in the 1994 film Wayne's World 2.
