Whipped! is Faster Pussycat's third album, released in 1992 by Elektra Records.

"Nonstop to Nowhere", for which there is a video, was released as a single and reached #35 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock track chart.

The track "Mr. Lovedog" was a tribute to the Mother Love Bone singer Andrew Wood, who had died in 1990.[citation needed]

The tracks "Too Tight" and "Charge Me Up" were recorded during these sessions, but did not make it onto the final album. They were released on the Belted, Buckled and Booted EP.

There are two different versions of the Whipped! album cover; one features a zoomed out shot of the band running away from a giant dominatrix, whereas the other version is a zoomed in version of the same picture, so it simply looks like the band members are running across a beach.

The record was not released on vinyl in the United States, but was in a number of Asian countries, including Korea.[citation needed]
