"'Ingenting" is a song by Swedish alternative rock band Kent from their seventh studio album, Tillbaka till samtiden. It was released as the album's lead single on September 17, 2007 through RCA Records and Sony BMG.

This is the first new release from Kent as a quartet and the band has chosen to work with a new producer; the Dane Jon "Joshua" Schumann. The result is a brand new electro based sound and this first single contains two songs with hard and up tempo beat along with dance and club rhythms. It feels like a step towards the more broad albums like Vapen & Ammunition or Hagnesta Hill compared to the previous more low key and narrow songs on Du & jag döden and The Hjärta & Smärta EP. References to Hagnesta Hill are made in the lyrics to Ingenting and you can still hear the echoes of the two previous productions on these two single tracks although it's mixed with a new sound in more direct songs. This maxi cd single also contains three remixes of the title track made by Italian DJ duo Alex Dolby and Santos, the Danish DJ duo Copyfokking and a third by Kent's bassist, Martin Sköld, under the pseudonym Shieldster. The single was released September 17 but people that bought Sony Ericsson mobile phones with a special Kent-package after September 10 could download the song already on the 16th. No promo copies was sent out before the release. The single was released in Germany on September 21 through the Sony BMG subsidiary Red Ink/RoughTrade (same pressing as the Nordic release).

The video was released on September 18.
