Everything is the third studio album by the American pop rock band the Bangles. It was released on October 18, 1988 through Columbia Records.

Just like its predecessor, Everything also produced a Top 5 hit ("In Your Room"), and a number one single, "Eternal Flame," which became a chart-topper in almost every major chart around the world, among its released singles.

The 2008 reissue CD on the Wounded Birds label (WOU 4056) adds a bonus track: "In Your Room" (12" Remix). Two songs that were recorded for the album but not released were "What I Meant to Say", which was the B-side of "Eternal Flame", written by the Peterson sisters and sung by Debbi, as well as "Everything I Wanted", co-written and sung by Susanna and released in 1990 on Greatest Hits.
