Alternative is the ninth album by UK electronic music duo Pet Shop Boys. It was first released in 1995.

Alternative is a 2-disc set, consisting of 30 B-sides in chronological order. The title Alternative was a last minute change from the title that had been long saved for such an album, Besides. That title would have perhaps been more fitting with the names of Pet Shop Boys' earlier albums, a few others of which are named with a single adverb (Please, Actually, and Very).

Alternative only really gained popularity among devoted fans of Pet Shop Boys. Although most of the album is previously unreleased, much of the music is from earlier in Pet Shop Boys' career, and the album did not sound "new" enough to generate much interest from music listeners who were not already familiar with the music.

The cover of Alternative features photographs of Neil and Chris in fencing masks. The first copies of the CD have a hologram on the cover which shifts between the two photographs.
