"Addicted to Pain" is a song by American hard rock band Alter Bridge. Written by lead vocalist Myles Kennedy and lead guitarist Mark Tremonti, it was featured on the band's 2013 fourth album Fortress. The song was also released as the lead single from the album on August 20, 2013, peaking at number 4 on the US Billboard Mainstream Rock chart and reaching the top 20 of several other Billboard charts.

"Addicted to Pain" was one of the first songs written during sessions for Fortress, which vocalist Myles Kennedy claimed helped the band to progress with the writing of the rest of the album, as well as encouraging them to be "more experimental". According to lead guitarist Mark Tremonti, Kennedy wrote the lyrics to the track in response to "somebody close to him ... venting about his problems". The song was first made available for online streaming on August 7, 2013 on Alter Bridge's YouTube channel, before it was officially released as the first single from Fortress on August 20. Speaking in a track-by-track feature of the album, Tremonti explained that the band chose the song as the album's lead single due to the success of "Isolation", the first release from 2010's AB III, which he compared to the Fortress track as a "more aggressive song ... that's straight to the point".

The music video for "Addicted to Pain", directed by Daniel Catullo, was released on September 5, 2013
