Faster Pussycat is the first album by the band of the same name. The album reached #97 on the Billboard 200 chart. Videos were made for several of the songs on the album, including Don't Change That Song, which had a video directed by Russ Meyer.

The band performed Cathouse and Bathroom Wall in the film The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years, and they were interviewed in the segment as well.

The album was reissued on CD by UK-based company Rock Candy Records, with expanded liner notes and photos.
