Agents of Fortune is the fourth studio album by American hard rock band Blue Öyster Cult, originally released in a gatefold sleeve LP in 1976 through Columbia Records.

The platinum-selling album peaked at No. 29 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart,<ref name="USalbum" >{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> while the single "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" peaked at No. 12 on the Pop Singles chart,<ref name="USsingle" >{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> making it Blue Öyster Cult's biggest hit.

The band also became a larger concert attraction at this time—largely based on not only their stageshow, but aided by the airplay of "(Don't Fear) The Reaper," which to this day is a staple of FM rock station playlists. Concert venues became larger, the show became more intricate and BÖC was reaching its commercial peak on the tour circuit.
