The Incredible Shrinking Dickies was the 1979 first album by the California punk band The Dickies. The album included the group's notable cover of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid", which reached No. 45 in the UK charts in July 1979. It was pressed on at least four different colour vinyls (blue, yellow, orange, clear) and was produced by John Hewlett, who in the late 1960s was a member of the UK garagepunk quartet John's Children, which for a short while included Marc Bolan as guitarist.
