"You Love Us" is a single by the Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers. It was released on January 16, 1992 and was the third single to be released from their debut album, Generation Terrorists.

The CD included "A Vision Of Dead Desire", "We Her Majesty's Prisoners" and "It's So Easy" (live). The 12" "A Vision Of Dead Desire" and "It's So Easy" (live) and the 7" and cassette "A Vision Of Dead Desire".

The song reached number sixteen in the UK charts on February 1, 1992. It was the most successful single released from the album. It also made an appearance as track number six on the 2002 greatest hits compilation, Forever Delayed.

An earlier version was released by Heavenly Records on May 25, 1991 (see "You Love Us (Heavenly)"). The new version had a much heavier rock sound and the "Lust For Life" coda was replaced, on the album version of the track, by an extended guitar solo.

The Manics dedicated the song to boxer Félix Savón when they became the first western rock band February 2001 to perform in Cuba.

The song was the last ever performed live with missing guitarist and lyricist Richey James Edwards. As a foursome the band played the song as set-closer for their sellout final gig at the London Astoria just five weeks before Edwards vanished.
