Glam is an album by German electronica group Mouse on Mars, first released in 1998. It was recorded in 1996 for the purpose of being a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but both the film and the soundtrack were rejected by the studio.

It was their second album for their own label Sonig Records, released originally only on vinyl, though a CD was released in Japan by Tokuma Japan Communications. The Japanese release also included two additional tracks, "Snap Bar" and "Hetzchase Nailway." The album was later reissued on compact disc in the US by the music label Thrill Jockey in 2003 (with the two extra tracks included).
