"Bitters End" is the final song on Roxy Music's self-titled debut album, released in 1972. The song is based on a group vocal arrangement done in a satirical 1950s doo wop style. In the middle eight, the band sings 'bizarre', which seems to sum up the initial impact of the first listens to the album. "Bitters End" was not performed live often, however Roxy Music did perform it on 23 June 1972 for John Peel on the BBC sessions.

A cover version of this song is on the Velvet Goldmine soundtrack, performed by Andy Mackay and Paul Kimble.
