Ultravox! is the first studio album from the band Ultravox!, which at the time was properly eponymous before the band dropped the Neu!-inspired exclamation mark from their name. It was released on Island Records on 25 February 1977,[3] recorded at Island Studios in Hammersmith in the autumn of 1976[4] and produced by Ultravox! and Steve Lillywhite, with studio assistance from Brian Eno.

Songs like "Sat'day Night in the City of the Dead" and "Dangerous Rhythm" were written while the band were named as Tiger Lily and were performed, alongside other songs from the album, during 1976, before its release.[5] Videos of a gig in Germany in that year can be seen on YouTube.

It's believed three of the songs of the album have promo videos, "The Wild, The Beautiful And The Damned", "Dangerous Rhythm" and "Wide Boys" and also can be seen on YouTube, but it is also suggested the three were only live performances with playback.[6]
