Fuck You (stylized as !!!Fuck You!!!) is an EP released by thrash metal band Overkill in 1987. Consisting of a cover version of the song "Fuck You" (originally by The Subhumans), the EP also featured 5 live tracks recorded at Phantasy Theater in Cleveland, Ohio.[1] Long out of print, the EP is now extremely rare, but was re-released in 1997 with extra tracks as !!!Fuck You!!! and Then Some.[1]

Both the cassette version of the original 1987 release and the 1990 CD reissue were sold with reversible cover art. When sold in stores, the visible side was a full sheet of white with the band's logo, the album name reading as !!!**** You!!!, and a subhead that read "The Record THEY tried to ban". A Parental Advisory logo appeared in the lower right corner on the CD. The original cover art was able to be used if the booklet/J-card was opened and reversed by creasing the cover the opposite way.[1] One pressing was sold in a black plastic bag.[2] As of 2006, Fuck You had sold over 6,000 copies in the U.S. since the beginning of the SoundScan era.[3]
