World Domination Enterprises were an English indie rock band active in the 1980s. The band mixed elements of indie rock, post-hardcore (a la Big Black and Naked Raygun), and dub.

World Domination Enterprises' sound was defined by their atonal guitar. They were best known for their cover version of LL Cool Js "I Can't Live Without My Radio", and early single "Asbestos Lead Asbestos", which was first performed by singer/guitarist Keith Dobson's defunct band The 012.[1][2]

The band was linked with the Mutoid Waste Company, and played at many of their events, as well as CND benefits.[3]

Much of the back catalogue was compiled on the 2009 reissue of the Let's Play Domination album.[4]
