Punk in Drublic is the fifth studio album by the American punk rock band NOFX. It was released on July 19, 1994 through Epitaph Records. The title is a spoonerism of "Drunk in Public".

Punk in Drublic is NOFX's most successful album to date, peaking at number 12 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart.[3] The album has received positive reviews and is now considered a classic punk album by fans and critics alike. Six years after its release, it became the band's only gold record for sales of over 500,000 copies[4] in the United States, all without any radio play or aired music videos (although a video was made for the song "Leave It Alone"). Worldwide, the record has sold over 1 million copies.[5]

The AllMusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awards the album 4.5 stars and states: "The quartet didn't change their approach at all — at their core, they remain a heavy, speed-addled, hook-conscious post-hardcore punk group — but their songwriting has improved, as has their attack."[9]
