Give 'em Hell is the debut album by the British heavy metal band Witchfynde. The album was released in 1980 during the new wave of British heavy metal heyday and re-released in 2004 by Lemon Recordings. The 2004 re-release featured three bonus tracks ("The Devil's Gallop", "Tetelestai", and "Wake Up Screaming").[4]

The album has often been cited as a relevant example for the production of the NWOBHM scene and as an inspiration for the black metal subgenre.
