"Ain't Talkin' 'bout Dub" is a song by British dance group Apollo 440, released as the second single from their sophomore studio album Electro Glide in Blue (1997). It is based on a sample of the lead guitar line of the rock group Van Halen's 1978 song "Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love".

The single's front cover features a photograph of Member of Parliament Jeremy Thorpe wearing Jimi Hendrix's Gibson Flying V guitar backstage at a Jimi Hendrix Experience concert at the Royal Festival Hall in 1967.[1]

The beginning of the song contains a sample from the 1971 SF film The Andromeda Strain.
