Hanx! is a live Punk album by the band Stiff Little Fingers, released in 1980 (see 1980 in music). Originally intended for the American market to introduce the band before they toured there, it was subsequently released at a budget price in the UK as the band were concerned that a lot of their fans would insist on buying the album on import anyway for a higher price. Jake Burns remarks on the sleeve notes for the CD reissue that only "Johnny Was" came from the Rainbow Theatre show with the remainder recorded at the Aylesbury gig.

The title "Hanx!" is a phonetic representation of Burns' delivery of "Thanks" after most numbers.
