"The Ballad of Chasey Lain" is a song by the Bloodhound Gang on their 1999 album "Hooray for Boobies". It was released as a single in the United States and overseas.

The song is presented as a series of letters to the porn star Chasey Lain from a fan, requesting that he be allowed to perform anilingus on Lain. Over the course of the story, the fan is revealed to be obsessive, and the lyrics get progressively angrier, in mockery of the stance taken by the overzealous fan archetype once the affection is perceived as being ignored. With its escalating format, it is similar to Eminem's 2000 release, "Stan."

At the end of the song, the overenthusiastic fan either fantasizes about a serious relationship with Lain or actually kidnaps and introduces her to his parents as his wife to be, as indicated in the bridge: "Mom and Dad, this is Chasey / Chasey, this is my mom and dad."

Lain was the object of Jimmy Pop's obsession for a period leading up to the recording of the album (which led to the writing of the song), and was tapped for reading dialog. According to the band, she was quite arrogant, and the recording went poorly.Fact|date=July 2007 Outtakes were used for the subsequent track, "R.S.V.P." This ended Jimmy's fascination with her, though the song has been regularly played at the band's live performances.

The song shares its melody with "Sea of sin" by Jimmy Pop's favorite band Depeche Mode.
