You'll Rebel to Anything is the third studio album by New York City band Mindless Self Indulgence released on April 12, 2005. The album was released outside of the US on November 5, 2007, in an "Expanded and Remastered" edition. On January 22, 2008, the "Expanded and Remastered" version was released in the US. A special Japanese version of the remastered edition was released on March 5, 2008, which includes a demo version of "Bomb This Track", the completed version of which can be found on If.

This album resulted in many firsts for the band: it was their first studio album to feature Lyn-Z on bass, first studio album to have alternate versions, first studio album to reach the Billboard, first studio album to be released outside of the US, first studio album in which clean versions of all the tracks were released to hard copy, first studio album to feature tracks from Pink and Alienating Our Audience, and their first studio album to have music videos based on tracks besides those excerpted from live shows.[citation needed]
