¡Viva Zapata! is the second album by the American punk band 7 Year Bitch. It was released June 28, 1994 on Seattle-based C/Z Records. It was their first album to feature new guitarist Roisin Dunne who had replaced the late Stefanie Sargent in 1992. The album's title is in tribute to The Gits' vocalist, and friend of the group, Mia Zapata who was raped and strangled to death in July, 1993. Some of the songs on this album relate to Zapata's murder directly (such as "M.I.A.", which encourages vigilante justice for her killer) as well as Sargent's death by drug overdose ("Rock A Bye").
