Farstucker is the fourth studio album from Belgian electronic band Lords of Acid. It was released in 2000 on Antler-Subway Records and marks the band's full transition from the techno of their earlier work to an industrial music outfit, with use of more live instruments. This is the first Lords of Acid album to be released following the departure of founding member Nikkie Van Lierop (aka Jade 4 U), and the first featuring new vocalist Deborah Ostrega.

Lyrically, Lords of Acid maintain their trademark themes of sex, drugs and hedonism.

Jade 4U provides backing vocals on "Rover Take Over".

Farstucker peaked at number 160 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Like prior studio albums Lust, Voodoo-U and Our Little Secret, Farstucker was re-issued in 2001 in a "Stript" version, with all vocals removed.

The title is a spoonerism of "Star-Fucker".
