Dawn of the Dickies was The Dickies' second album, released in 1979. It included the UK hits "Nights in White Satin" (a high-speed cover of a Moody Blues song) which reached No. 39 in the UK chart in September 1979 and "Fan Mail" which made No. 57 in February 1980.

The album's title and jacket cover, depicting the band members set upon by "zombies" in blue make-up, was a salute to the George A. Romero horror film, Dawn of the Dead.
