Yesyesyesyesyes (stylised as yesyesyesyesyes) is the debut album from Brisbane band The Boat People. It is the first full-length release following four EPs over five years.

It features the singles "Clean" and "Unsettle my Heart" as well as "Tell Someone Who Cares", a song from their previous EP of the same name.

The group has three different singers on the record. For the most part, it's keyboardist Robin Waters who is the lead singer, but bassist James O'Brien contributes lead vocals to five tracks on the record, and guitarist Charles Dugan gives lead on the track "Central Station".

During the album's first week of release, it entered the Australian Independent Records chart at number 15 along with both local and nationwide play on alternative radio stations across Australia. All three singles received high rotation on the Australian youth radio station Triple J who Unearthed the band in 1997, under the band's previous name, Four on the Floor.

The album was released by Shock Records and mixed by Ben Stewart, Jonathan Burnside and Brisbane based producer Magoo.
