Alarma!Ì is the fourth studio album by Christian rock band Daniel Amos, issued on Newpax Records in April 1981. It is the first album in their Alarma! Chronicles series and one of the earliest records in the Christian alternative rock genre.

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

Lyrically, the album contains social commentary so harsh thatÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__CCMÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__described it as "perhaps the most scathing ever put out by a Christian label."[2]
