Second Coming is the 1989 comeback album, and fourth studio album overall, by punk band The Dickies, and the band's fourth studio album. By 1989, the Dickies' brand of tongue-in-cheek, poppy punk was largely out of fashion, but the later success of bands like Green Day and the Queers make it clear what an influence these L.A. jokers were. Highlights include snarky covers of "Hair" and Gene Pitney's "Town Without Pity", alongside equally goofy originals like "Dummy Up" and "Booby Trap".

In 2007, the album was re-released by Captain Oi! and featured the tracks from the Killer Klowns From Outer Space EP as bonus tracks.
