Here Today, Tomorrow Next Week! is the second studio album by Icelandic alternative rock band The Sugarcubes. It was released in September 1989 by Elektra. The album spanned three singles: "Regina" which reached #2 on the Alternative Songs chart, "Tidal Wave" and "Planet". The album itself reached #70 on the Billboard 200, #15 on the UK Albums chart and #1 on the UK Indie Albums chart.

Contrary to their critically acclaimed debut album, Life's Too Good, Here Today, Tomorrow Next Week! was poorly received by critics.

The name of the album was inspired by Mr. Toad from the famous children's book The Wind in the Willows.

A version of the album sung in Icelandic titled Illur Arfur ("bad legacy") was also released.
