Louder Than Bombs is a compilation album by British indie pop band The Smiths, originally released in March 1987 via Rough Trade Records in the UK and Sire Records in the US.

Compiling singles, B-sides, album tracks, and BBC sessions, Louder Than Bombs boasts a wealth of brilliant material including "Ask", "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby" and "Unlovable."

The album was released as the American counterpart to their recent British compilation The World Won't Listen and consisted of all singles and nearly all B-sides that had not at that point been available in the United States, either on single or album, with a few other tracks added. The title is borrowed from a line in Elizabeth Smart's extended prose poem By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept.

The album peaked at #62 on the US Billboard 200 album chart. Popular demand prompted their British record company, Rough Trade, to issue the album domestically as well. Upon its release in the UK in May 1987, it reached #38 on the British charts.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 365 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and ranked 369 on a 2012 revised list.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2016 reissue on 180 gram black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with remastered audio, pressed in Europe via Sire Records.
