The Nekromantix are a Danish-American psychobilly band formed in 1989 in Copenhagen, Denmark and currently recording for Hellcat Records. Their music is generally structured around monster and horror themes which are reflected in their album and song titles, lyrics, artwork, and stage show. A central icon of the band's image is bassist/vocalist Kim Nekroman's "coffinbass", a custom-built, very deep double bass with a body in the shape of a coffin and a headstock the shape of a cross.

The band has had changing lineups throughout its career, with founder Kim Nekroman as the sole constant member. The current line-up consists of Nekroman, guitarist Franc, and drummer Lux. Throughout the band's first 11 years they released five albums on various European record labels, which were only available in the US as imports. The group crossed over to American audiences in the early 2000s by signing to the Los Angeles-based Hellcat Records label, through which they have released three albums since 2002. The Nekromantix' eighth album, ''Life Is a Grave & I Dig It!'', was released in April 2007.
