Show Business (stylized as $how Bu$ine$$) is the sixth studio album by the glam metal band Kix. It was released in 1995 through CMC International following their departure from Atlantic. The album was a commercial flop, as grunge had taken over the music scene. As a result, Show Business would be the band's last album before their long-term breakup. It would also be the final Kix album to feature founding band member and principal songwriter Donnie Purnell.
