"We're All Going To Die" is a song by Scottish singer-songwriter Malcolm Middleton, and the fourth single released from A Brighter Beat. The song was released on 10 December and more widely on 17 December 2007. A limited-edition seven-inch record was also released at a later date.[1]

Championed by Colin Murray and other BBC Radio 1 DJs, there was a campaign to make the song the Christmas number-one in the UK singles chart.[2] The song was originally given odds of 1000/1 to reach the top spot by bookmakers William Hill, the longest odds they have ever given.[3] The odds were later cut to 9/1,[1] but in the event the song reached only number 31.[4][5]

Regarding the song, Middleton notes that the song has "nothing whatsoever" to do with Christmas and that it is about "general life worries."[6]
