Forever Since Breakfast is the debut Guided by Voices record, released on vinyl in 1986. In contrast to the lo-fi sound they would cultivate in the coming years, this EP was recorded in a professional studio, and features a nearly slick sound that anticipates their late 90's major-label efforts. Robert Pollard, the band's driving force, has since derided the EP's sound as sterile. Like much of their early output, the songs featured bear a prominent college rock influence, particularly from R.E.M.. The title reportedly comes from Charles Manson's response to an interviewer when asked to state his age.

The record was first released on CD as part of 2003's Hardcore UFOs box set, and was reissued on vinyl in 2005.
