Don't Be Happy... Just Worry is a mini-album by The Wildhearts, initially released in 1992 by Eastwest Records as a double EP. It was re-issued on 25 April 1994 as a single-CD and cassette mini-album, both formats with all eight tracks. The first disc (tracks 1-4 on the single disc version) consists of a remixed version of the Mondo Akimbo a-Go-Go EP. All eight songs were included on the 2010 CD release of Earth Vs The Wildhearts.

Lead track "Turning American", sometimes incorrectly assumed to be an anti-American statement, is actually about people, particularly successful musicians, who do not stick to their roots.
