Electro Glide in Blue is the second album by the British electronic band Apollo 440. The album features Charles Bukowski, Billy Mackenzie and a tribute to Gene Krupa; all three of whom had died by the time of the album's release.

On the day that Princess Diana died, BBC Radio One suspended its regular schedule out of respect and spent the day playing more understated music; the track Stealth Mass in F#m was played several times.

The soundtrack for the American comedy thriller film, Homegrown used "Electro Glide in Blue".[2]

The title of the album, and of the song, is a reference to the movie Electra Glide in Blue.
