Think Pink is the 1970 debut album by English psychedelic musician Twink. It was produced by Mick Farren and featured members of The Pretty Things, The Deviants, plus Steve Peregrin Took of Tyrannosaurus Rex. It was released on Sire Records in the US in 1970 and Polydor Records in the UK in early 1971 (as a warm-up for the release of the Pink Fairies' debut album Never Never Land.) The final two tracks were the only commercial release of any songs written by Took until 1990, ten years after his death.

The track "Fluid" was sampled by duo Gnarls Barkley on their track "Would Be Killer" from the hit album The Odd Couple.
