Whites Off Earth Now!! is a 1986 album by Cowboy Junkies. It was the band's debut album, and is composed almost entirely of rock and blues covers. Only one song, "Take Me", is an original song by the band.

It establishes the spare country blues sound that took the band to international fame with their next album, 1988's The Trinity Session. Due to the success of The Trinity Session this album has received far less critical attention over the years.

The album was released on Latent Records in 1986, and rereleased internationally on RCA Records in 1991. On March 27, 2007 audiophile label Mobile Fidelity reissued the album on SACD and high density vinyl.
