Plastic Green Head was the sixth studio album by the American doom metal band Trouble, released in 1995. First released on the Music for Nations label in Europe, it was distributed in the U.S. by Century Media Records. Soon after the release of this album, Trouble went on an extended hiatus after their European tour was cancelled. The album was re-released with a bonus DVD by Escapi Music in February 2008.

Plastic Green Head also marked the return of original drummer Jeff Olson, who had left Trouble in 1986 and returned in 1993.
