"Romantic Rights" is the first single from Death from Above 1979's debut album You're a Woman, I'm a Machine. Released in 2004, it reached number 57 on the UK Singles Chart.[1] Prior to the band's first name change, a self-titled extended play was released on April 13, 2004, consisting of four songs.

The song plays as the intro to, and throughout, the MTV show Human Giant. The duo also performed the song on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, joined by Max Weinberg mid-song. The song appears on the soundtrack for video games SSX On Tour and NBA 2K15, the latter which was curated by music producer Pharrell Williams.[2] The band played "Romantic Rights" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, with Grainger drumming for the first half of the performance and Late Night's Max Weinberg on the same drum set for the second.[citation needed]
