Adult Themes for Voice is an album recorded by Mike Patton (vocalist for Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, Tomahawk, Peeping Tom) in hotel rooms during a Faith No More tour. It consists of vocal noises by Patton himself. The 34 tracks are not considered singing in any conventional sense, as they consist mainly of Patton shouting, screaming, clapping, squeaking and moaning. These elements were then spliced and edited in a fashion that resulted in a dramatic ebb and flow of bizarre, albeit organic sounding compositions. The compositions do not adhere to traditional song structure.

Mike Patton stated that Japanese noise band Hanatarash's album Aids - A - Delic inspired this release.[citation needed]
