"Still Fighting It" is a song by Ben Folds released in 2002 as the second single from his 2001 album Rockin' the Suburbs. The song is a bittersweet ode to the pain of adolescence dedicated to his son Louis. He would later write an accompanying song for his daughter Gracie on the 2005 album Songs for Silverman, and he often performs the two songs together live. The B-sides on the single release of "Still Fighting It" are live versions of "Zak & Sara" from Rockin' the Suburbs and "Boxing" from Ben Folds Five's self-titled debut album.

Angela Aki covered the song for the B-Side of her single "Tegami: Haikei Jūgo no Kimi e", which was released in 2008.
