Kill.Fuck.Die. was the seventh studio album by American heavy metal band W.A.S.P., released by Castle Records in 1997.

It differs from their other releases by being more industrial and aggressive. Guitarist Chris Holmes rejoined the band for this album in a surprise move. According to lead singer Blackie Lawless, Holmes and he had just came out of bad relationships and this is reflected on the album. According to Lawless the record was also inspired by the movie Apocalypse Now.

It has often been cited that this album is also another conception piece, (like The Crimson Idol), as it refers to many issues of relationships and pain and also has a rough story alongside all the tracks that seem to run together, however this has never been confirmed by Blackie Lawless or the rest of the band.
