Space Heater is the fifth album by Reverend Horton Heat, released by Interscope Records in March 1998. It charted on the Billboard 200, reaching number 187. "Pride of San Jacinto" appears in the videogame Hot Wheels Turbo Racing.

Album art[edit]

The front-cover album art is a parody of 1950s horror movie posters. It plays on a double entendre, turning 1950s-era space heaters into alien spacecraft invading from outer space, complete with search lights or tractor beams.
