"Komakino" is a song by English post-punk band Joy Division. It was released in July 1980[1] by record label Factory as a 7" flexi disc and given away free in select record shops.[2] 75,000 copies were pressed.[1]

The tracks are outtakes from the recording session for the album Closer.[1]

The single's B-sides, "Incubation" and "As You Said", are both instrumentals.

"Komakino" and "Incubation" appear on the 1988 compilation Substance, and "As You Said" was added to the expanded reissue of the album in 2015. All three tracks are also collected on the 4-CD 1997 compilation Heart and Soul.
