Headline News is the seventh and last studio album by British rock band Atomic Rooster.
It has been released on CD several times: firstly in 1994 on Voiceprint, secondly in 1997 on Blueprint and in 2002 on Eagle. In 2004 it was repackaged by Dutch label MCP as Future Shock. In addition, in 2005 the German Ambitions/Membran International label packaged it alongside The First Ten Explosive Years as a two-disc set entitled Rebel with a Clause.
All CD issues feature two bonus tracks not included on the original LP.
