Bedtime for Isocracy is the only studio album by the American punk rock band Isocracy. It was released on 7-inch vinyl in January 1988 through Lookout! Records with the catalog number LK 005. The title is a parody of the Dead Kennedys' final studio album Bedtime for Democracy (1986), a popular album among punk rock fans at the time. The cover art depicted the members of Isocracy in a bed, accompanied by Jello Biafra.
The track list on the sleeve (along with most online discographies of Isocracy) states that a cover of the Lynyrd Skynyrd song "Freebird" in its full form is the eleventh track. However, no such track is present on the extended play. What makes such a track even more unlikely is the limited recording time 7-inch provides, which in most cases is no more than ten minutes. With the recording time of the other tracks, there would barely be enough room for another twelve-second song, much less a seven-minute one.
All tracks written by Jason Beebout.

- The final track on the album, Sgalf Etaredefnoc, is a track that seems to be reversed. When the track is reversed again, it reveals that it is a segment of another Isocracy song, called Confederate Flags. Additionally, the name of the song is Confederate Flags spelled backwards.
