"Burn" is a song by the Chicago-based punk rock band Alkaline Trio, released as the third single from their 2005 album Crimson. It peaked at #34 on the UK Singles Chart.[1] The single was released as both a compact disc and a pair of vinyl 7-inches, each containing different demo, remix, and alternate versions of the song as B-sides. An additional remix version, the "Alleged remix", was released on the Underworld: Evolution: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

The song's music video, directed by Piper Ferguson, depicts the band performing "Burn" in a circus setting accompanied by acrobats, contortionists, and other performers.[2] As the song progresses fire is introduced into the performers' acts, and they dance and perform amidst the flames.[2] Bassist Dan Andriano is depicted playing a double bass, though the song is actually performed using a standard bass guitar, and drummer Derek Grant is depicted playing a makeshift drum kit composed of pots, pans, and other objects.[2]
