Freak Out!
is the debut album by American experimental rock band The Mothers of Invention, released June 27, 1966 on Verve Records. Often cited as one of rock music's first concept albums. It was also one of the earliest double albums in rock music.

"On a personal level, Freaking Out is a process whereby an individual casts off outmoded and restricting standards of thinking, dress, and social etiquette in order to express creatively his relationship to his immediate environment and the social structure as a whole."
