Panic[1] is Alexei Sayle's third album, released in 1985. This was his final album; he would later record some audiobooks in the late 1990s.

Panic spawned the singles "Didn't You Kill My Brother?" and "Meanwhile". The former was later featured in The Comic Strip Presents 1988 film of the same name written by Sayle. "Didn't You Kill My Brother?" is also a phrase Sayle has used often in his works, such as in an episode of The Young Ones. A version of the song "Panic" appears in a second series episode of Alexei Sayle's Stuff.
