"Loaded" is a 1990 song recorded by the rock band Primal Scream. It was the first single released from the group's 1991 breakthrough album, Screamadelica. It is a remix of Primal Scream's earlier song, "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have".

Primal Scream approached Andrew Weatherall after a favourable review of the second Primal Scream album in the 'Boys Own' football fanzine. He was asked to remix "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have", a song from the band's eponymous second album, Primal Scream and by the second or third attempt Loaded was born - his first visit to a recording studio.

The rest of the song is constructed from parts of "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have" , with a vocal sample from The Emotions' "I Don't Want to Lose Your Love," and a drum loop from an Italian bootleg remix of Edie Brickell's song "What I Am," plus Bobby Gillespie singing a line from Robert Johnson's "Terraplane Blues" and Andie MacDowell from the film Sex, Lies, and Videotape saying "That's beautiful... That's really beautiful."

The single was released in February 1990, 18 months before the arrival of the album in October 1991. It was around 3 minutes shorter than the album version.

"Loaded" reached number 16 on the UK Singles Chart, making it the group's first UK top 40 hit and featured a remix from regular Weatherall collaborator Terry Farley. The 7" b-side was a Pat Collier remix of the source track, "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have".

Muzik magazine listed the song as one of the 50 most influential dance records of all time, describing it as "unquestionably the finest indie dance record ever ... something akin to "Sympathy for the Devil" for the E generation"
