Hoodlum Thunder is a 1991 album and the second full-length studio album released by Zodiac Mindwarp and The Love Reaction. It was recorded at Lille Yard Studios in London, England. The album was supported by singles for "Elvis Died For You" and "Meanstreak". "Feed My Frankenstein" was also recorded by Zodiac's influence, Alice Cooper, and released on his 1991 Hey Stoopid album. It was featured in the 1992 movie Wayne's World.

The band had been dumped by Phonogram, owing them nearly a million pounds, though not before recording a couple of demos. The first included "Elvis Died For You," "TV Brain" and the unreleased "Desolation Boulevard" (all co-written with Coler & Richardson). A five-song demo included the tracks "Private Hell" (two versions), "Trash Madonna," "Tomorrow Belongs To The Love Reaction," and "Airline Highway." Signing with Musidisc saw the band take a left-turn into musical oblivion. Zodiac recalled, "To be honest, they were the only ones who would have the album! They're like the South America of the record industry... We got turned down by literally every record label in the world".[1]
