"Love Song" is a single by The Damned. Despite the title, this is not a love song.

It was the first fruit of the reformed line-up's deal with Chiswick Records, boosted by four variant picture sleeves, each one featuring a member of the band, with an additional 20,000 copies pressed on red vinyl - 5,000 for each sleeve. This, combined with radio airplay and a catchy song, was The Damned's first hit, peaking at UK #20 and leading to the band's debut on Top of the Pops.

In February 1982, Chiswick reissued the single on their Big Beat imprint, using only the covers featuring Dave VanianCaptain Sensible and Rat ScabiesAlgy Wardhaving left the band by this stage.

The single was also issued in FranceGermany and the Netherlands.
