A.K.A. I-D-I-O-T is an EP by Swedish band The Hives, released in 1998.

The song "A.K.A. I-D-I-O-T" was first released as the second track on The Hives' first album, Barely Legal. It was released again on the compilation Your New Favourite Band, though not in its entirety, along with "Outsmarted", "Untutored Youth" and "Mad Man". "Numbers" is a cover of The Adicts' song from the album Songs of Praise and appeared only on the American pressing of the EP.
