Peep is the debut album by Finnish alternative rock band The Rasmus (named just "Rasmus" back then), released on 23 September 1996 on Warner Music Finland.

They met their first manager and record producer, Teja Kotilainen in 1995 and signed with Warner Music Finland in February 1996. They released their first EP, called 1st, on Teja G.
