¡Alarma! is a 1981 album by rock band Daniel Amos, released on Newpax Records.

¡Alarma!, released weeks after the band's the Beatles- and The Beach Boys-influenced Horrendous Disc, took a decidedly new wave direction along the lines of Elvis Costello or Talking Heads.

Lyrically, the album contains social commentary so harsh that CCM described it as "perhaps the most scathing ever put out by a Christian label."<ref name="CCM_3_10"/>

¡Alarma! was the first of a four part series of albums by DA entitled The ¡Alarma! Chronicles, which also included the albums Doppelgänger, Vox Humana, and Fearful Symmetry. This album, along with the other three albums from the Alarma! Chronicles, was rereleased as part of the Alarma! Chronicles book set in 2000. The book set included three CDs and a hardcover book of lyrics, photos, liner notes, essays, interviews and other information that amounted to over 200 printed pages.

Dieckmeyer left the band before the ¡Alarma! Tour, and was replaced with bassist Tim Chandler.

This album was listed at No. 62 in the book CCM Presents: The 100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music (Harvest House Publishers, 2001).

In 2013, the album was remastered and repackaged as a two-CD deluxe edition by Stunt Records. Tom Gulotta and Eric Townsend were put in charge of compiling the project - bringing together previously unseen photos, never-before-heard out-takes, mixes and demos, and a reading of the first chapter of the Alarma Chronicles by Malcolm Wild.
