"Dark Entries" is the second single released by British gothic rock band Bauhaus. It showcases the guitar playing of Daniel Ash and tight rhythm section of David J and Kevin Haskins. The lyrics deal with the song hero's decadent vision of the modern world, with a main focus on prostitution, in a somewhat decrepit atmosphere.

The single was released three times: as AXIS3 (original 4AD imprint), AD3 on 4AD records and BEG37 on Beggars Banquet. The sleeve art, showing a painting by Paul Delvaux, was very slightly different on the Beggars Banquet release, and due to the change of names of 4AD, some editions on public sale will have contained one imprint of the disc with a different imprint of the cover. This makes this a very collectable item.

It was covered and released by singer Jan Linton as (dr jan guru) in 2003. Additionally, the band Hole used the riff of the song for their song "Mrs. Jones" on their first album, Pretty on the Inside (1991).
