Boo Hoo is the third studio album by Cuban American dark cabaret singer Voltaire, released on May 14, 2002 through Projekt Records.[1] According to Voltaire, he began writing songs for the album after his then-girlfriend broke up with him;[2] dealing with it in a sometimes satirical and irreverent, sometimes introspective and sentimental manner, most of the album's songs are about loss, heartbreak, remorse and attempts to overcome her.

The only songs unrelated to the album's concept of heartbreak are "BRAINS!", one of Voltaire's most memorable songs, that he originally composed for The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy episode "Little Rock of Horrors"; "Graveyard Picnic", a tribute to Edgar Allan Poe and his works; "Bachelorette" and "Caught a Lite Sneeze", covers of Björk and Tori Amos, respectively; and "The Vampire Club", a light satire about the goth subculture. A new version of "The Vampire Club", re-written to satirize the Twilight series of novels/films, would appear on his 2010 compilation Spooky Songs for Creepy Kids.
