The Terror State is the fourth full-length album by Pittsburgh punk rock band Anti-Flag; released October 21, 2003 on the independent label Fat Wreck Chords. The album's artwork was regarded as somewhat controversial (picturing lead vocalist Justin Sane's niece, Rachel, amongst rubble holding an automatic handgun), and the band was forced to create an alternate version (which was simply all black with the Terror State logo centered) for sale in some larger chain stores, such as Wal-Mart.[4]

Produced by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, The Terror State was hailed as Anti-Flag's most polished album to date. The album made #1 on KTUH's charts on the week of January 19, 2004.[5] As of April 3, 2008, the album has sold 106,000 copies.[6]
