"Prokofiev" was a single released by the Damned in 1991 on the Skinnies Cut label.

The song was recorded in June 1990 in Rat Scabies' home studio, consisting of a loop of The Stooges' song "Gimme Danger", over which Brian James improvised on guitar and sound effects. At a later point, vocals by Dave Vanian were added.

The single was sold on The Damned's September 1991 reunion tour of the US and came without a picture sleeve. It was later remixed for Not of This Earth in 1996.

The song was a tribute to the composer Sergei Prokofiev.[citation needed]
