Tight is the debut album by the American rock band Mindless Self Indulgence. The album was originally released on April 20, 1999 through Uppity Cracker Recording Group.[1] After having been out of print for many years, the album was reissued as Tighter on April 26, 2011 through The End Records. The reissue features updated artwork and packaging, 12 previously unreleased tracks, and a bonus DVD.[2]

The song "Bring the Pain" is a cover of a Method Man song from his album Tical. The song "Bite Your Rhymes" references lyrics from Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby". There is a hidden track, "JX-47", where guitarist Steve plays acoustic guitar and sings nonsensical lyrics. The tracks "Mindless Self Indulgence" and "Ecnegludni Fles Sseldnim" are messages from the band's answering machine. They both concern getting the band booked for a live show, but both times the caller (Octavio 9) couldn't remember the band's name.

On April 20, 2008, the band posted "Tight", in its entirety, on their MySpace page in honor of its ninth year from the original release.[3]
