'''''Repeater''''' is the debut album by American PostHardcore outfit Music/{{Fugazi}}, released April 19, 1990 - later bundled with the previous ''3 Songs'' EP (''[[BreadEggsBreadedEggs Repeater + 3 Songs]]'') a month later. As expected of a hardcore album, the concepts explored centre around greed, violence, sexuality, privacy, drug abuse and death.

''Repeater'' received critical acclaim and is considered a landmark in underground music, with profound influence on both PostHardcore and on EmoMusic.
