Neighbourhood Threat is the first album released by the heavy metal band Johnny Crash, released in 1990. Recorded at Ocean Way Studios, Los Angeles and mixed at Battery Studios, London. The album features guest appearances by Kingdom Come members Danny Stag and Johnny B. Frank.

The title is no doubt taken from the song recorded by first by Iggy Pop and later covered by David Bowie of the same name, "Neighborhood Threat".

After this album, August Worchell was replaced by J.J. Bolt and Stephen Adamo was replaced by then future and now former Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum, and keyboardist Dizzy Reed joined. All three played on the band's second album Unfinished Business, which was released in 2008.
