Sandinista! is the fourth album by the punk rock band The Clash, and their most experimental. Released in 1980 as a triple album containing 36 tracks, with 6 songs on each side. Some critics have argued that the album would have worked better as a smaller project, it being too ambitious, with many tracks put in as filler to reach the 36 song quota. Others think of the album as a breakthrough that deserves comparison to the Beatles' White Album. It was voted as the best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll.

The title comes from the left-wing guerilla organization of Nicaragua, the Sandinistas, who the previous year had overthrown the dictator Anastasio Somoza. It has been said that Margaret Thatcher, no fan of left-wing guerrillas, wanted to ban the word sandinista, instigating The Clash to choose it as the title of their next album.

Guest musicians on the album include Mickey Gallagher, and Timon Dogg, who later joined Joe Strummer's band The Mescaleros.

In January, 2000 this album along with the rest of the Clash's catalog was remastered and re-released.
