Example is a 1995 album released by For Squirrels and produced by Nick Launay. It was For Squirrels's only major label release, as lead singer John Vigliatura and bassist Bill White died when the band's tour bus blew a tire and crashed less than a month before the album's release.

Despite the death of half the band, the two surviving members chose to release the album as scheduled on October 3. The band also released "Mighty K.C." as the lead and eventually only single from the album. The song would peak at #15 on the Billboard Modern Rock Track schart.

The album did not gain mainstream popularity, reaching only 171 on the Billboard 200, but thanks to the lead single, had considerable airtime on college radio.

Travis Tooke and Jack Griego would form a new band, Subrosa, and released one album, Never Bet the Devil Your Head.
