Enuff Z'Nuff is the self-titled studio album by American hard rock band Enuff Z'Nuff, released in 1989 on Atco Records. This debut album continues to be the best selling album in the band's catalog. The album's first single, the rock song "New Thing," received steady radio and MTV airplay, peaking at #67 on the Billboard Hot 100. Their follow-up single, a ballad called "Fly High Michelle," would prove to be the band's biggest hit, peaking at #47 on the same chart. Promotional CDs were created for another song, a ballad called "For Now," but this single was apparently cancelled while the band focused on their follow-up record, 1991's Strength album.

Additional exposure for the album occurred with the album tracks "Hot Little Summer Girl" and "I Could Never Be Without You" being featured on the popular TV shows Beverly Hills, 90210 and Northern Exposure. A few years later, the band's glam appearance in their video for "Fly High Michelle" would be parodied on MTV's Beavis & Butt-head.
