"Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde" is a single by the Damned, released on 13 February 1981.

With the group signing a deal with I.R.S. to distribute their music in the United States, the label decided to release "Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde" to promote The Black Album.

The minimalist sleeve was in keeping with the American release of The Black Album, which, unlike the UK release, featured a spoof of the Beatles' The Beatles - a plain black sleeve with the band's name in small white lettering in the bottom left corner.
