Firecracker is a Grammy-nominated album by Lisa Loeb. It was released in 1997 through Geffen Records.

Cheva Chonin of Rolling Stone noted that the "endearing naivete and frothy, indie-rock guitar" of her debut album had been replaced "by staid arrangements and lackluster riffs."[2]

The album was certified Gold in the U.S. and Canada and was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
