Pile Up is a compilation album by American queercore band Pansy Division, released on February 16, 1995 by Lookout! Records. The album compiles various singles, b-sides, cover songs and compilation appearances recorded between 1992 and 1995.

Allmusic gave the album a rating of 3 out of 5 stars, praising it as "some of the best of the Pansies, with a slew of covers and their best harmonies and tightest playing to date", though noted the "danger of becoming a one-joke band".[1]
