"Don't Let It Get You Down" is a single by Echo & the Bunnymen which was released in November 1997. It was the third single released after Ian McCulloch, Will Sergeant and Les Pattinson reformed the band. It was also the third single to be released from their 1997 album, Evergreen. It reached number 50 on the UK Singles Chart.
Like their previous two singles, "Nothing Lasts Forever" and "I Want to Be There", the single was released on London Records as a 7-inch single and as two separate CD versions – apart from the title track all three releases had different track listings and each with a different cover.
Written by Will Sergeant, Ian McCulloch and Les Pattinson, the title track was also self-produced by the band. It was mixed by Clif Norrell. The photography for the CD covers was done by Norman Watson.
