"The Bouncer" is a single by British rave/breakbeat hardcore duo Kicks Like a Mule, released in 1992. The song was a success, peaking at #7 on the UK Singles Chart. It features vocal samples of an archetypal club bouncer saying "your name's not down, you're not coming in", "not tonight, you're not on the list" and "listen mate, I told you once, I told you twice, you're not on the list, alright?".

A keyboard riff sample is taken from the 1990 song "Moribund" by Frank De Wulf. In 2006, English indie rock band Klaxons covered "The Bouncer" for their Xan Valleys EP. Kicks Like a Mule returned the favour the following year by covering the Klaxon's "Gravity's Rainbow". In 2008, English electronic musician Zomby sampled the vocal sample "your name's not down, you're not coming in" in the song "Hench" from his album Where Were U in '92?.
