"Is That You Mo-Dean?" is a song by The B-52's released as the second single from their album Good Stuff. It was written by all the band members. The song originated from a stage chant the band would play in their early days. Despite the success of the previous single "Good Stuff", the song failed to chart. It nevertheless became one of the most popular tracks from Good Stuff and a live favorite for many years. The CD and 12" singles for the song have various remixes of "Is That You Mo-Dean?" by Moby.

The single edit of the song was included on the band's greatest hits compilation Time Capsule: Songs for a Future Generation. The music video for the song was featured on The B-52s’ music video collection The B-52's Time Capsule: Videos for a Future Generation 1979-1998.
