Hotwired is the third studio album from The Soup Dragons. Recorded in 1991 and 1992 at Livingston Studios and Advision Brighton, it was released April 21, 1992.

AllMusic described Hotwired as the album where the Soup Dragons reached "the happy medium between the slick breakbeats and guitar-based rock & roll", adding that the songs are "among the strongest of the band's career".[1] Both "Pleasure" and "Divine Thing" were alternative dance singles that became moderate hits in the U.S.. Bold production effects include chugging guitars on "Getting Down", a romping harmonica jam on "Running Wild"[2] and gospel choir-like background vocals sprinkled throughout the album.[1]
