For Madmen Only is a rock album by the band Atomic Opera, released in 1994 (see 1994 in music). The album was produced by ZZ Top video producer Sam Taylor. Taylor is known for his production and management work with the band King's X early in their career.[2] The title is a reference to a sign above a hidden door, to the Magic Theatre in Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse.

The CD was out-of-print for many years until 2014, when in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the album's release, Frank Hart released a remastered reissue of the album, including three bonus tracks.[3][better source needed]

Some Warner Bros. Records CDs (released under the Collision Arts label) were distributed as promotional copies and have gold lettering stating this stamped on the front cover.

The video for the song "Justice" was played approximately 20 times on MTV.[citation needed]
