Stink is an EP by the band The Replacements, recorded at Blackberry Way, Minneapolis, Minnesota, on March 13, 1982, and released on June 24, 1982.

Before the first track, "Kids Don't Follow", audio can be heard of the Minneapolis police breaking up a party at the Twin/Tone recording studio. It is possible by listening carefully to hear one of the audience members curse the police. The audience member in question is believed to be Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum.[5]

The EP was remastered and reissued by Rhino Entertainment on April 22, 2008, with four additional tracks.

The song "Kids Don't Follow" was made available as Rock Band 2 DLC on May 19, 2009.
