Save the World · Get the Girl is the second album by The King Blues. It was released on 20 October 2008. Four singles were released from the album: "My Boulder", "Let's Hang the Landlord", "Save the World · Get the Girl", and "I Got Love". "I Got Love" reached #96 in the UK Singles Chart[citation needed]. The album has been received very well by fans and critics[citation needed]. The band hoped to make the top 75 on the albums chart starting 27 October[citation needed]; however, the album did not do so, peaking at #113.

The title is taken from the Clash song "Red Angel Dragnet" from their album Combat Rock.
