Með Nöktum (With The Naked) was a short-lived Icelandic new wave band from the 1980s. After the demise of the occult post-punk band Þeyr, their vocalist Magnús Guðmundsson went on to form a group which continued the musical style of Þeyr. They only released one album in 1985 titled Skemmtun and split up just a short time afterwards.[1][2]

The album title literally means (Með Nöktum) "entertains" which can be taken ironic, as the album offers some thought provoking lyrics. Musically it follows the path of Þeyr's The Fourth Reich EP and the "Lunaire" single.[3]
