Nothing Feels Good is the second album by American emo band The Promise Ring. The album has gained a cult following, and is frequently regarded as one of the most influential records of the emo genre. The title of the album was used as the name of the book Nothing Feels Good: Punk Rock, Teenagers, and Emo by Andy Greenwald. Original bass player Scott Beschta is credited with writing and playing all the bass parts for the album.

The cover art for the album was shot in front of Trimper's Rides on the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland.
