"Bad Side of the Moon" is a song by Elton John with lyrics by Bernie Taupin. It is the B-side of his single "Border Song", and was originally released in 1970. It was included on the reissue of his self-titled album in 1995 and on his live album, 17-11-70. It is also possible to hear a version on Here and There.

The song starts with nothing but a marching drum beat and Elton singing, but then goes into a somewhat funky verse and chorus with heavy orchestration, which lasts throughout the song.

The English rock band Toe Fat covered it in 1970.

The Canadian rock band April Wine covered it in 1971. It still gets frequent airplay on most rock radio stations.
