Under the Influence is the twenty-third studio album by English rock band Status Quo, released in 1999. A remastered version contained two bonus tracks.

To date it is the last album featuring new songs written by Francis Rossi together with Bernie Frost, as Rossi continued his 1970s songwriting partnership with Bob Young afterwards. It is also the last studio album featuring new material with drummer Jeff Rich, who left the group the following year.
