Yama no Att-chan. (山のアッちゃん。?, "Att-chan of the Mountain(s).") is the second album released by Japanese pop punk band Shonen Knife and is almost exclusively in Japanese. The album was named after Atsuko, their drummer, the honorific "-chan" being added. [2] Thus the title a bit of a pun, since the drummer's name is, when rendered Japanese style, Yamano Atsuko.

The original Japanese 8" vinyl (Zero Records 0-0584) includes 10 songs. The CD reissue bonus tracks are either "Flying Jelly Attack" and "Insect Collector" live (Oglio Records, USA), or "Secret Dance" and "Flying Saucer Attack" (MCA Victor, Japan).

The reissue version of this album does not feature the original version of "Dalí's Sunflower" - it contains a more recently recorded version. The 1990 compilation album "Shonen Knife" features the entire album with the original version of "Dali's Sunflower" as well as the album "Burning Farm".
