Don't Bomb When You're the Bomb is a 2002 single released by Blur as 7" vinyl single. It was recorded towards the start of the sessions for Think Tank when Graham Coxon was absent.

The track was inspired by the Iraq conflict hence the Arabic text on the red labels. 1000 copies were pressed and it has subsequently been reported that the majority were destroyed during an anti-Iraqi war protest.[1]. It is one of the band's rarer promotional singles, along with "The Wassailing Song", "Death of a Party" and "Bugman".

The track was included in the band's Blur 21 box set in 2012.
