"Dracula"/"The Rose" is a 7" single (Megadisc MD 5270[1]) by Dutch rock and roll band Claw Boys Claw. "Dracula" had earlier been released on the Hitkillers album, a collection of covers of Dutch hits from the 1960s and 1970s.[2] The B-side, "The Rose," was recorded in 1988 but never released. On 25 March 1989, "Dracula" reached #85 on the Dutch charts, where it spent a total of 4 weeks.[3]

The two songs were also issued as a CD single (Megadisc MDC 5270[1]) with a number of bonus tracks. These nine songs, most of which covers, were recorded on October 6, 1986 (on sleeve incorrectly listed as June 10, 1986),[1] when the Claw Boys Claw, operating under the name "The Hipcats," opened for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds in Vredenburg, Utrecht.[2][4]
