Sticker Happy is the Eraserheads' fifth album, released by Sony BMG Music Philippines Inc. (formerly BMG Records Pilipinas, Inc.) in 1997. At the time, the album cover courted a healthy amount of controversy as to the identity of the nude woman playing an upright piano in the middle of a field (later revealed to be then-Channel [V] VJ Joey Mead).

Musically, the album is heavier as the band brought to the fore various guitar effects purchased during their New York visit. Although still retaining the signature "E-Heads" sound, 'Sticker Happy' is very much influenced by mid-1990s techno and also featured a heavy amount of sampling, most notable on the tracks "Maalalahanin", "Downtown" and "Everything They Say".
