The Crash of '47 is the first studio album released by the American alternative metal band Atomship. It was released on May 4, 2004 and was produced by Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Superjoint Ritual). The song "Time for People" was released on the Wind-Up soundtrack for the movie The Punisher. The one and only single from "The Crash of '47", is "Pencil Fight".


Atomship started out as Watership Down, containing Nathan Slade and Chad Kent, both of whom played on The Crash of '47, and Derek Pardoe, who only wrote songs for the album. After the name change to Atomship, Joey Culver subbed as the lead vocalist, while Pardoe had personal troubles while he dealt with anxiety problems and as a result was unable to participate. The bass was played by Slade on 5 tracks, and Cordell Crockett (bassist of Ugly Kid Joe) played on the rest.
