Oops! Wrong Planet is an album released in 1977 by Todd Rundgren's band, Utopia. It delivers a markedly trimmed down, pop-oriented, and somewhat cynical direction for the band following the perniciously optimistic and progressively influenced previous album, Ra.

Oops! peaked at #77 on the Billboard album chart in 1977.[2]

"Love is the Answer" later became a hit for England Dan & John Ford Coley, charting #1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary list in 1979.[3]
