Ozma is the second album by the Melvins. The album was released in 1989 through Boner Records.

"Love Thing" is a cover of the KISS song "Love Theme (from KISS)", "Creepy Smell" includes the intro to the song "Living In Sin" from Gene Simmons' solo album. "Candy-O" is originally by The Cars and was a bonus track on the CD version.

The title refers to the character Princess Ozma from the Oz series of books.

The CD version of the album has Gluey Porch Treatments appended to it. The track listing that is printed on the CD lists 34 tracks, but the CD only has 33 tracks. This is due to "Exact Paperbacks" and "Happy Grey Or Black" being mistakenly combined on track 23 and not split into separate tracks as credited.
