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

Just like its predecessor, Everything also produced a US 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 Hoffs and released in 1990 on Greatest Hits.
