Change is a song by Killing Joke that first appeared on the US release of their 1980 debut album, Killing Joke. On 26 September 1980, this same version of "Change" was released as the B-side of the band's single "Requiem".[1]

A version of the song recorded at a John Peel session on 5 March 1980 was issued that month as a limited-edition promotional single, available at gigs and without advertisement from the band's Malicious Damage label. The B-side was a version of "Tomorrow's World" (originally on Killing Joke's debut album) recorded at the same Peel session. These two versions later appeared on the 2008 compilation The Peel Sessions 1979–1981.
