"Lovely Money" is a single by the Damned, originally released 18 June 1982.

Their first release with new label Bronze, it showcased the band's willingness to experiment, being a seemingly lightweight slice of pop thanks to a disco-style electronic drum beat, which contrasted with a voice-over provided by former Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band frontman Viv Stanshall that criticised the nationalism that had arisen following the Falklands War in 1982. The "Disco Mix" was essentially the same track, with the backing sped up by the mischievous band.

Bronze attempted to boost sales by issuing a picture disc version of the single as well, and also issued the single in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Australia and New Zealand.
