"Death of a Party" is a song by Blur that first appeared in this form as the eighth track on their 1997 self-titled album, although a 1992 demo of the song was released as their first Fan Club single. It is a slow, eerie dirge featuring distorted, lo-fi guitars and drums, with influence from lo-fi bands such as Pavement. It was later selected by the band to appear on the Midlife: A Beginner's Guide to Blur compilation album, and on the live album series All the People: Blur Live at Hyde Park. It remains a perennial fan favorite and appeared more than any other song on the remix album Bustin' + Dronin'.
