Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy (often abbreviated FGWSSS or just Frankenstein Girls) is the second album by New York City band Mindless Self Indulgence released in 2000. The album is the follow-up to the album Tight. The original album name, according to the few promo discs released, is Frankenstein Girls That Seem Strangely Sexy.

It is the last studio album to feature Vanessa YT as their bass player, and the last album by them to feature a message from their answering machine ("M", in which the caller accuses them of homosexuality) as one of the tracks.

The track listing on the back cover has all the vowels replaced with asterisks, even in those words that would not generally be considered offensive, as a form of protest against censorship.[citation needed] The tracks of this album are also in alphabetical order.

The cover of the album was drawn by Jamie Hewlett, the artist known for Tank Girl, and more recently, Gorillaz. Hewlett offered to make a music video for a song on the album but was rejected by Elektra.

Promo/Advance copies of the album featured slightly different "skit" tracks from those featured on the final version.
