Sink is a Foetus Inc compilation album that was first released in 1989 on Self Immolation/Some Bizzare and Wax Trax! Records. It compiles rare and unreleased songs from various Foetus projects from 1981–1989. Many of the rare tracks on the album have been edited shorter than their original length.

Sink is Foetus' final Some Bizarre record and Wax Trax! debut. It saw release again in 1995 thanks to Thirsty Ear's effort to reissue the Foetus catalogue. All versions' liner notes contain an up-to-date Foetus discography.

Sink is Self Immolation #WOMB INC 6.
