Earthshaker is the third studio album by American hard rock/heavy metal band Y&T, released in 1981 through A&M Records. It is their first album under their current name, after changing it from Yesterday and Today. It was re-released in 2006. Several tracks from Earthshaker are commonly played during the band's live shows. The most common songs played are Rescue Me, Hurricane, and I Believe In You, which when performed live usually crosses the 8 minute mark.

Earthshaker was the first of five studio albums recorded through label A&M which Y&T were with from 1981-85. The 10 songs on this track are the first 10 on disc 1 of Earthquake The A&M Years 1981-1985.

Contrary to popular belief, the Japanese heavy metal band Earthshaker didn't take their name from this album, rather they took it from the song Earthshaker off of their first album Yesterday and Today.
