Sing Along Songs for the Damned & Delirious is the second studio album by the Swedish experimental metal band Diablo Swing Orchestra. It was released on September 21, 2009 on Ascendance Records.[3][4] It was produced by In Flames producer Roberto Laghi at IF Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.[3][5]

It is the last album to feature Andreas Halvardsson as drummer, and the first with trombonist Daniel Hedin and trumpeter Martin Isaksson. However Hedin and Isaksson joined the band as full-time members in 2011 only, with Sing Along Songs for the Damned & Delirious becoming the last album with the band being a sextet.

All songs are credited to Diablo Swing Orchestra; however, according to singer and guitarist Daniel Håkansson, the songs were mostly written by him and other guitarist Pontus Mantefors.[6]
