Supersnazz is the first studio album by the garage rock band the Flamin' Groovies. It was released in 1969 on the Epic label. The record was the group's only album for a major company. Its commercial failure put an end to their major label recording career. Supersnazz was later released in compact disc format in 2000 on Sundazed Records with several bonus tracks.
