Sticker Happy is the Eraserheads' fifth album, released by BMG Records (Pilipinas), Inc. in 1997. At the time, the album cover courted a healthy amount of controversy as to the identity of the nude woman playing an upright piano in the middle of a field (later revealed to be then-Channel [V] VJ Joey Mead).

Musically, the album is heavier as the band brought to the fore various guitar effects purchased during their New York visit. Although still retaining the signature "E-Heads" sound, 'Sticker Happy' is very much influenced by mid-1990s techno and also featured a heavy amount of sampling, most notable on the tracks "Maalalahanin", "Downtown" and "Everything They Say".

Sticker Happy sold 55,000 copies nationwide and was certified platinum by the Philippine Association of the Record Industry (PARI).[4]

David Gonzales of AllMusic gave Sticker Happy three out of five stars and wrote that "While the album is not as enjoyable nor the melodies as uniformly strong as on Cutterpillow, which remains the band's best album, Sticker Happy has its fine moments."[5]

In popular culture[]

An urban legend popular among fans alleges that the song Spoliarium, one of the album's tracks, is a reference to the Pepsi Paloma rape case.[6] In 2021, Buendia later revealed in an interview that the song is all about a drunken session with the band's roadies in a condominium in San Juan.
