"Ain't No Love (Ain't No Use)" is a song by Sub Sub, released as a single in March 1993.[1] It features Temper Temper's Melanie Williams on vocals.[1] In the music video, Jimi Goodwin plays bass, Jez Williams plays keyboards and percussion, and Andy Williams plays keytar.

This song was the act's biggest single, reaching #3 in the UK Singles Chart and becoming one of many dance singles in 1993 to cross over into mainstream popularity in the UK.[2] After struggling to repeat the success of the single, and after a fire destroyed the band's Ancoats studio in 1996, the group eventually reformed with a radically different sound as Doves in 1998.[2]
