"I Think I'm Going Bald" is the second song from Rush's third album Caress of Steel. The music was written by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson and the lyrics were written by Neil Peart.

According to the book "Contents Under Pressure", this song was partly inspired by then-tourmates Kiss. Geddy Lee explains on page 32: "We were touring a lot with Kiss in those days and they had a song called "I Think I'm Going Blind" (actual title was "Goin' Blind", from Kiss' Hotter Than Hell album). So we were kind of taking the piss out of that title by just coming up with this." Lee goes on to explain that the title originated with drummer Neil Peart, who was making light of the fact that Alex Lifeson was constantly worried about the future possibility of going bald, often employing "all kinds of ingredients to put on his scalp. And I think it just got Neil thinking about aging..."
