The Devil You Know is an album by the industrial alternative rock band Econoline Crush. It was released in Canada in 1997 by EMI, and in the United States in 1998 by Restless Records. While they are still only popular in Canada for the most part, this album helped to increase Econoline Crush's exposure in the United States more than their previous album.

Tracks 12 through 22 of the album are silent; track 23 consists of a Biblical passage (I Corinthians 13:4-8) recited in Japanese.

Remixes of Sparkle and Shine, Nowhere Now, and Surefire were featured in the PlayStation game Sled Storm.

All That You Are was used in the pilot episode of Sci-Fi channels Being Human.
