Love Is Dead is the sixth album by the Berkeley, California punk rock band The Mr. T Experience, released in 1996 by Lookout! Records. It was the band's second album as a three-piece and first with bassist Joel Reader and drummer Jim "Jym" Pittman, replacing Aaron Rubin and Alex Laipeneiks, respectively, who had departed the group the previous year.

The song "I Just Wanna Do it With You" was used in the soundtrack to the 1996 movie Glory Daze starring Ben Affleck and was included on the film's soundtrack album, along with the song "Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend" from the band's 1993 album Our Bodies Our Selves. During the film's party scene, the main characters also perform as a band a cover of The Mr. T Experience song "Now We Are Twenty-One" from their 1988 album Night Shift at the Thrill Factory.
