Electro Glide in Blue is the second album by the British electronic band Apollo 440. The album features Charles Bukowski, Billy Mackenzie and a tribute to Gene Krupa; all three of whom had died by the time of the album's release.

"Stealth Mass in F#m" was played several times on BBC Radio 1 on 31 August 1997, when their regular schedule was suspended due to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.

The soundtrack for the American comedy thriller film, Homegrown used "Electro Glide in Blue".[2]

The title of the album, and of the song, is a reference to the movie Electra Glide in Blue.
