Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge is the second studio album by the grunge band Mudhoney. It was recorded in 1991, at a time when the band was thinking of signing to a major record label, but decided to release the album on Sub Pop. Guitarist Steve Turner has said that the album is his "favorite Mudhoney album as a whole" and many critics agree that the band reached a peak on Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge.

The album is named after a mnemonic used by music students to recall the notes (EGBDF) on the lines of the treble clef.

Along with their debut EP Superfuzz Bigmuff, the album was included in 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, with reviewer Jason Chow calling it "a classic album, one of the best of the genre."[2]
