|The Zombies singles chronology|
"Tell Her No" is a hit single by British rock band The Zombies in 1965, featured on their eponymous debut album The Zombies. It peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States in March 1965 and was one of three big American hits by The Zombies (the others being "She's Not There", in 1964, and "Time of the Season", in 1969). "Tell Her No" was only a minor hit for The Zombies in their native Britain, where it peaked at No.42 on the UK Singles Chart in February 1965.
The word "No" is mentioned a total of 63 times in the lyrics of the song.
In 1983, country-pop singer Juice Newton remade "Tell Her No". Newton's version reached No.14 on the US Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary singles chart and No.27 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. Newton changed the song's lyrical gender and point of view, which significantly altered the song's meaning.
