Danse Macabre is the third studio album by the Omaha-based new wave band The Faint. It was released on August 21, 2001 in the U.S. and roughly a year later in the UK, where it has enjoyed similar popularity.

This album is the 37th release of Saddle Creek Records.

The first pressing of Danse Macabre on vinyl and CD included a different, unauthorized photo that led to them being pulled and having the covers re-printed with an image of The Faint member Dapose.

The album was followed in 2003 by the Danse Macabre Remixes. The remix album includes mixes by Photek, Junior Sanchez and Paul Oakenfold, among others.
