Goat is the second full-length studio album by The Jesus Lizard, released in 1991. It is their most acclaimed album, with many critics[when?] calling it one of the best albums of the 1990s. The album was produced by Steve Albini.

Its cover art, by bassist David Wm. Sims, at first glance resembles a flame, but is actually a topless woman with a close-up image of nails projected onto her body. The rear of the album, and several panels of the enclosed CD booklet include similar pictures of the same naked woman, with different images projected onto her body. It was ranked as the 38th best album of the 1990s by the online magazine Pitchfork Media.[8]
