A Bunch of Stiff Records, also known as A Bunch of Stiffs, is a various artists album to promote some of the first acts to be signed by Stiff Records.

Three of the tracks, Wreckless Eric's "(I'd Go The) Whole Wide World", Motörhead's "White Line Fever" (the B side of "Leaving Here") and Elvis Costello's "Less Than Zero", had been issued as singles (BUY 16, BUY 9 & BUY 11 respectively). The album did not enter the UK charts, but it did turn out to have some of the most important recording artists of the 1970s and 1980s.

Graham Parker's track (No. 6, the final track on side 1 of the LP) was not listed on the original release, probably due to his contract with Phonogram, for whose Vertigo label he and the Rumour had already released two LPs.

The album was designed by Barney Bubbles (uncredited).
