Bela Lugosi's Dead is an influential gothic rock song (often considered to be the first) written by the band Bauhaus. The song was the band's first single, released in August 1979. It did not enter the UK pop charts, but remained on sale for many years thereafter. The B-side features the song "Boys" and some versions also include an early recording of what would be their next single, "Dark Entries". Due to licencing restrictions, the original version of the title track was not made available on any other format until the 1998 album, Crackle - The Best of Bauhaus.
