Bang! is the ninth studio album by English hard rock band Thunder. It was released on 3 November 2008.[2] Bang! is the only Thunder album to have a Parental Advisory sticker on the front cover, due to a very brief use of profanity in "On the Radio". It was their final studio album to be released prior to them splitting up in 2009.

While writing the album, Thunder released three limited edition EPs: Six of One, ...Half a Dozen of the Other and The Joy of Six.[3]
