Bugger Off! is the second album by Stack Waddy, released in 1972 on Dandelion Records.

The album liner notes by Dandelion Records's owner and executive producer, John Peel, indicate each song was recorded in a single live take with the band refusing to make any kind of overdubbing or technical treatment on the resulting sound. He narrates that on one occasion he asked them to run through a song a second time and the band members yelled "Bugger Off!, Peel'", which gave rise to the album's title.[1][2]
