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; however going on to reform once again in 2011.

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]
