The Dead 60s is the eponymous debut album by British rock band The Dead 60s. It was first released in the United States on 31 May 2005. The office building on the album cover is Concourse House, which once stood next to Liverpool Lime Street railway station. It was demolished as part of a regeneration of the area surrounding the station.

A bonus, 3-video DVD was given out with initial sales of the American CD at indie record shops, and was also distributed at US gigs. It includes the music videos for the band's first 2 singles, plus a video montage of their Japan tour.
In November 2005, it was revealed that the US CD contained Extended Copy Protection (XCP), a controversial feature that automatically installed rootkit software on any Microsoft Windows machine upon insertion of the disc. The CD was withdrawn and a new version without XCP was issued on 22 November 2005.
Another product-related problem for the band was the mis-pressing of the UK vinyl album, which lists on both the label and sleeve the same tracklisting as the UK CD, but in fact plays the tracklisting of the US version. The LP was re-pressed and distributed with the same catalogue number. The original issue has a blue starburst sticker on the cover, and the reissue does not.
"You're Not the Law" was the first single off the album and was released in limited edition. 1,000 copies of each format were sold.
