Stop Murder Music is a campaign to oppose alleged homophobic work of certain Jamaican musicians, primarily dancehall and ragga artists such as Buju Banton, Bounty Killer and the Bobo Ashanti Rastafarians Sizzla and Capleton.

The campaign accuses these artists of promoting violence against LGBT people through the lyrics in their music and attempts to stop this. Stop Murder Music is jointly run by OutRage!, the Black Gay Men's Advisory Group, and J-Flag. The term was coined by British gay rights activist Peter Tatchell in the mid-1990s.
