Don't Back Down is the fifth album by pop punk band The Queers released on Lookout! Records. It was remastered by Mass Giorgini and reissued by Asian Man Records in 2007 with 3 songs from the Bubblegum Dreams EP.[3]

Kembrew McLeod of Allmusic regarded the album as an artistic peak, stating that "the Queers successfully use the musical vocabularies developed by the Ramones (as well as Brian Wilson and others) and take their songs to new levels" and "some of the songs, dare it be said, even surpass many of Brian Wilson's perfect pop songs."[4]
