Wasps' Nests is the 1995 debut album by The 6ths. A side-project created by Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields, Merritt wrote and recorded the album, inviting different vocalists to sing lead.

Like the band's name, the album title is a tongue-twister.

"Yet Another Girl" only appears on the vinyl release of the album.
