Third World Posse is a limited edition EP by the Brazilian thrash metal band Sepultura, released exclusively in Australia in 1992. It contains the studio version of "Dead Embryonic Cells", a cover of the Dead Kennedys' song "Drug Me", and three live tracks taken from the Under Siege (Live in Barcelona) video in Spain on May 31, 1991.

By the end of the year Sepultura returned to Brazil, so they could take a few weeks off before doing a short German tour with the NWOBHM band Mötorhead and the Florida death metal group Morbid Angel in December. During their break they went to record a cover version of "Drug Me" for the Virus 100 compilation. Virus 100 was designed to celebrate the 100th album by the independent record label, Alternative Tentacles, run by the ex-Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra.[1] Napalm Death, Faith No More, Neurosis and L7 also recorded tracks for the album.[2]

"Drug Me" and live tracks taken from the Under Siege video were later collected on the Australian-only EP Third World Posse (1992). In July 1992 Sepultura toured Australia, they were supported by local heavy metal group, Taramis.[3]
