Like This is an album by the dB's, released on Bearsville Records in 1984. On the album, the band performed as a trio following the departure of Chris Stamey. The album includes a re-recorded version of "Amplifier", the lead single from their previous album, Repercussion.

The album's cover is a collection of stills from the music video for their 1982 single "Neverland", which went unreleased until 2008.[3] Stamey, who was present for the video shoot, was edited out of the stills present on the cover.
