Dom kallar oss artister (English: "They call us artists") is a television program on SVT1 in Sweden premiering on 28 October 2008. Each half-hour episode follows a Swedish musical artist or group through such activities as busy promotion days in Los Angeles, costume tests for coming tours, hard rock camping in the mountain valleys of Slovenia, recordings in Nashville, and gigs at the home of fans in Enköping.

All episodes share standard segments in which each artist tells about the moment that made them understand that music would become their life, "I mitt arkiv"; shares their favorite music playing in their headphones, "I mina hörlurar"; and make a unique appearance with the song that they think defines them as artists, "Till sist".

The title theme is written and performed by Björn Olsson, who besides his own solo project, has played in The Soundtrack of Our Lives and produced, among others, Håkan Hellström and Mando Diao.
