"She Sells Sanctuary" is a song by the British rock band The Cult. It is from their 1985 album Love and was released as a single in May of that year, peaking at number 15 on the UK Singles Chart.
"She Sells Sanctuary" was the last song to be recorded with The Cult's longtime drummer, Nigel Preston, who was fired from the band shortly after its release.
According to Billy Duffy, the iconic introduction effects were the result of the fact that all of the guitar effects pedals were on at the same time. The recording was edited to include the introduction with the effects, where as earlier versions started the song more abruptly.
