China Crisis is een Engelse pop/rockband, in 1979 opgericht door Gary Daly (zang/toetsen) en Eddie Lundon (gitaar) in Kirkby, een plaats in de buurt van Liverpool. Ze maakten muziek die op new wave leek, maar sterke overeenkomsten had met de postpunkbeweging die actief was in het begin van de jaren ‘80. Gedurende hun carrière was China Crisis met mate succesvol in Engeland met tien hitsingles tussen augustus 1982 en januari 1987 en zes albums. Daarnaast hadden ze commercieel succes in West-Europa, Australië, Zuid-Amerika en Noord-Amerika.
