Drop Dead is an album originally released in 1984 by Weymouth hardcore band Siege. It is the only album the band ever released. The original "album" was a self-released demo cassette with six songs recorded at Radiobeat studios in Boston and produced by Lou Giordano. There were also three songs recorded for Pushead's Cleanse the Bacteria hardcore compilation. When the album was finally given a proper (i.e., non-bootleg) release on CD by Relapse Records in 1994, the three Cleanse the Bacteria tracks were added to the original six demo tape songs.

Deep Six Records then re-released the album on 12" vinyl in 2004, with the identical tracklist to the Relapse reissue, being the original six songs with the same three compilation tracks added.

These nine tracks were the only things recorded by Siege until they reformed in 1991 with Seth Putnam of Anal Cunt on lead vocals and recorded a demo tape from which one song, "Cameras", was released in 2004 on the 13 Bands Who Think You're Gay compilation album. It is unknown how many songs were recorded with Seth on vocals. This demo tape has never been released in its entirety and seems to be otherwise unavailable.

However, two separate additional reissues of the original Siege material done on lp in 2006 and 2009 by the Deep Six record label mysteriously contained an additional three tracks, "Two-Faced," "Trained To Kill," and "Questions Behind The Wall". According to the sticker on the cover of the 2006 record, it states that these tracks are "unreleased tracks from original sessions," but it is unclear if the songs were recorded in 1984 and remained unreleased until now, or if only the music is from the original sessions with vocals added later (by either the original vocalist or by Seth Putnam).
