Teenage Shutdown! "She's a Pest"! is a compilation album featuring obscure American garage and psychedelic rock musical artists that were recorded in the 1960s. It is the fifteenth and final installment of the Teenage Shutdown series. Typical of its predecessors, the album's material originated from the collection of Mike Markesich, who also provided the liner notes. The album was released on Crypt Records on February 14, 2000.

Musical highlights include a homage to Bo Diddley by Tampa Bay group the Rovin' Flames, which was first released in June 1966, and featured distorted guitar instrumentals by Jimmy "Mouse" Morrison. The title track is provided by the obscure Los Angeles band the Insects, from their first of three singles. Additionally, the song "Gone, Gone, Gone" is a folk rock number by the Third Evolution prior to the group's name change and progression into psychedelia. A fast-paced composition, "I Gotta Be Goin'" by the Plague is one of the more-compiled tracks on the album, as it also appears on Louisiana Punk Groups from the Sixties, Volume 2, and Sixties Archive, Volume 3. Other tracks include the Living Ends' "Self-Centered Girl", featuring a future member of the Looking Glass, the Lavender Hour's "I Gotta Way with Girls", which was covered by the Chesterfield Kings, and the Sceptres rendition of the Rolling Stones' hit "The Last Time".
