Unsane is Unsane's debut album, released in 1991 through Matador Records. It is the only studio album by the group to feature founding member Charlie Ondras, who died of a heroin overdose during the 1992 New Music Seminar in New York during the tour supporting the album.[2] The album's cover art, depicting a decapitated corpse on subway tracks, was given to the band from a friend who worked on the investigation for the case.[3]

Death metal band Entombed covered "Vandal-X" on their self-titled compilation album in 1997.

Allmusic4/5 stars[1]

Patrick Kennedy from Allmusic called it a brilliant and daring debut that "assaults the senses like the Swans or Foetus before them, but tempers that art-scum priggishness with clear roots in punk and classic rock."[1]
