"Vanity Kills" is a song by ABC released as the third single from their album How to Be a...Zillionaire!.

Two music videos were made by the band ABC. The UK video shows the four band members moving against a dark background, using simple stop motion camera tricks. The US version, directed by Peter Care,[1] has a spoken prologue and epilogue, and presents Martin Fry and Mark White as noir detectives, investigating a variety of shady American characters.
