"Atlantis to Interzone" is a song by British indie electro act Klaxons. The song references the mythical lost city of Atlantis and the short story collection Interzone by William S. Burroughs, which is itself Burroughs' concept of a "metaphorical stateless city". In October 2011, NME placed it at number 125 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years".[2]

The song has been remixed by many artists including Crystal Castles,[3] Hadouken!,[4] Germlin, Mr. Miyagi, Third Eye Mafia, So Me and Metronomy.
