Dork is an EP by American punk rock band AFI, released on March 2, 1993 on Key Lime Pie Records. It is a split 7" with Loose Change (of which future AFI guitarist Jade Puget was a member),[1] with AFI's Dork on one side and Loose Change's Stick Around on the other side.

This was AFI's first release, put out within a year of forming,[2] and was limited to 210 copies, out of which 4 were test pressings and 6 were used for promotion, so only 200 copies were sold.[3] It is now out of print and highly sought after among collectors, selling for over $700. The album was planned for reissue in 1995 but plans folded for unknown reasons.[4] Counterfeits were sold on eBay for at least a year, triggering a warning response from the record label.[5]

The cover is a picture of AFI drummer Adam Carson.
