"Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" is a song by the rock band Spin Doctors. It is the third track on their 1991 album Pocket Full of Kryptonite and was released as their debut single in October 1992.[2] Live versions of "What Time Is It?" and "Freeway of the Plains" (mistakenly titled "Freeway of Plains" on the single) were included as its B-side.[1] The single reached number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 2 on Mainstream Rock Tracks. It also reached number 5 in New Zealand, its highest chart position anywhere, ending 1993 as the country's 41st best-selling single. AllMusic describes the song as "incessantly catchy".[4]

During a 2011 performance for National Public Radio's World Cafe, lead singer Chris Barron commented that despite popular belief that the song was about an ex-girlfriend, it was actually written about his former stepmother.[5]
