Stop (Greek script: Στοπ) was the Greek entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1987, performed in Greek by Bang.

The song was performed eleventh on the night, following Turkey's Seyyal Taner & Grup Lokomotif with "Şarkım Sevgi Üstüne" and preceding the Netherlands' Marcha with "Rechtop in de wind". At the close of voting, it had received 64 points, placing 10th in a field of 22.

The song is directed to a woman who leads a glamorous life. The singer suggests that she should slow down and enjoy life, because otherwise she will miss out on the point of it all.

It was succeeded as Greek representative at the 1988 Contest by Afroditi Frida with "Clown".
