Dekadance is the title of two different collections of remixes by Australian rock group INXS: a 1983 12" EP released in the United States of songs from Shabooh Shoobah and a 1984 cassette released in Australia of songs from The Swing.

The Australian cassette features remixes from The Swing, and was released in six different versions. Each version had a different sleeve, one for each member of the band, which were sourced from the band photo on the cover of "The Swing". In following the general theme of the release, the photos themselves were "remixed" by the use of halftone (or similar) printing. Each image wraps completely around the package and is difficult to identify unless the package is dismantled and opened flat. Instead of the usual plastic hinged case, the packaging was a cardboard box that featured a flip-top opening, similar to that of a cigarette packet.
