Beelzebubba is the fourth full-length studio album by the punk rock band The Dead Milkmen, released in 1988. The album featured their best-known song "Punk Rock Girl." The song's video won rotation on MTV. While their music was still lively, some saw this album as more musically sophisticated than previous work (using trumpets in "RC's Mom", organ in "Bad Party", accordion in "Punk Rock Girl", violins in "Born to Love Volcanos," etc.). Jon Wurster is mentioned in the song Stuart.

In 1989, the Dead Milkmen released the Smokin' Banana Peels EP, which contained several remixes of the song Smokin' Banana Peels, originally featured on Beelzebubba. It also featured several previously unreleased songs.

Five tracks from this album ("I Walk The Thinnest Line," "Stuart," "Punk Rock Girl," "Smokin' Banana Peels," and "Life Is Shit") were selected for their 1997 compilation album Death Rides a Pale Cow: The Ultimate Collection.

The album cover features Rodney Linderman's father, also named Rodney.
