"Stretcher Case Baby" is a limited edition single by the Damned, released 3 July 1977 on Stiff Records.

Only 5,000 copies were distributed, none via record shops. Copies were initially given away at the band's London Marquee Club first anniversary concerts, but when these were cut short, further copies were given to fan club members, and 250 were given as crossword prizes via New Musical Express. The new tracks were cut with American record producer Shel Talmy, marking the band's first real steps away from the traditional punk ethos. "Stretcher Case Baby" was re-recorded for the band's second album, Music for Pleasure, under the shortened title "Stretcher Case".

A CD version was issued in the Stiff Singles 1976-1977 box set by Castle Music in 2003.
