Restrictions is the third studio album by American hard rock band Cactus, released in 1971 through Atco Records.[3] The album tracks "Token Chokin'", "Evil", "Alaska" and "Sweet 16" were all released as singles.

The album features heavy blues-rock originals, with a cover of the Howlin' Wolf blues standard "Evil". Stoner rock band Monster Magnet used Cactus' arrangement of the song for their own cover, which appeared on their 1993 album Superjudge.
