    (I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea is a song written by new wave musician Elvis Costello and recorded by Costello with his backing band the Attractions. The song appeared on Costello's 1978 second album, This Year's Model.

Musically the song featured influence from bands such as the Who and the Kinks and is notable for Bruce Thomas's prominent bassline. "Chelsea" was released as the debut single from This Year's Model, reaching number 16 in the UK and charting in other countries. The release was accompanied by a music video.
