TV Party was a 7" EP released by the American hardcore punk band Black Flag in July 1982 on SST Records. The sardonic lyrics of the lead track describe a group of friends who have nothing better to do than watch TV and have some beers. TV-watching is attacked as breeding stupidity and the names of several TV-shows that were popular during the recording of the song (such as That's Incredible!, Quincy, and Hill Street Blues) are called out in the lyrics.

This song was included in the soundtrack of the movie Repo Man.Both the song and a cover of it by the cast appears in the episode Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV of Futurama.
