The Man Who Sold The World è una canzone di David Bowie del 1970, incisa nel suo terzo album omonimo. E’ un brano ricco di riferimenti letterari, probabilmente ispirato ai lavori dell scrittore americano Howard Phillips Lovecraft e del poeta William Hughes Mearns.
Nel 1993 i Nirvana hanno reinciso il pezzo in occasione del loro MTV Unplugged e rilasciato col cd live MTV Unplugged In New York.
