A Piece of Americana is the fourth EP from American punk rock band The Offspring. A Piece of Americana was released in 1998 as sampler EP for their album Americana.

The EP contained all four singles to appear from the then-upcoming album, though some were slightly modified before their album release. The earlier versions from this EP later appeared on varying releases of the singles. The EP also contained the parody track "Feelings", which was not released a single like the EP's first four tracks.
