"I Can't Stand the Rain" is a song written and originally recorded by Ann Peebles. The song would become her biggest hit single (#6 R&B and #38 Pop in the United States in 1973) and one of her most recognizable songs.

The song has been frequently covered and sampled since its release in 1973. One popular version was a disco-oriented remake by Eruption. This version became the group's biggest hit (#18 Pop in the U.S.) when it was released as a single in 1978.

Lowell George covered the song on his 1979 album Thanks, I'll Eat it Here. The song was also covered by Bad Manners on their 1993 album Fat Sound.

The debut single by Missy Elliott, "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)", contains a sample from the song and it serves as the chorus.

A version of the song also appears on Sam Moore's 2006 album, Overnight Sensational with Wynonna, Bekka Bramlett, BeBe Winans and Billy Preston.
