"Break on Through" is a song performed by The Doors, recorded on the album The Doors in 1967. The song appeared in the Miami Vice episode "Back in the World".


  • This song was the first Doors single released, the follow-up, "Light My Fire", would launch the group's legendary career.
  • When "Break on Through" was released, the line "she gets..." after the line "everybody loves my baby" is missing the word "high", removed by Elektra Records in 1966 due to the drug use implied by the verse. The censorship remained until the 1990s when new releases and live performance recordings have restored the line.


  • Jim Morrison - vocals
  • Robby Kreiger - guitar
  • Ray Manzarek - organ
  • John Densmore - drums
