|Mindless Self Indulgence chronology|
Alienating Our Audience is a live album by the band Mindless Self Indulgence, released on October 8, 2002 (see 2002 in music). The album contains many fan favorites from the "Tight" era, as well as six previously unreleased tracks. The recordings took place throughout the band's tour with System of a Down (February 14-March 1), but mostly pulled material from two shows: May 13 at CBGB's in New York City, NY and May 15 at The Whiskey A-Go-Go in Los Angeles, CA.
The album also contains two of The Left Rights' videos, "Darth Vader (Who Gives a Sith)/Weirdo" and "Place Disclaimer Here".
This album is notable for its short length (approximately 20 minutes) contrasted with its full LP price, hence the album name. At the end of the very last track, Jimmy Urine asks the audience to shout "We want our money back" before the album comes to an abrupt halt, leaving the listener to reflect upon the album name.

The live version of Molly would later be put on their 2003 EP Despierta Los Niños. A studio version of "Two Hookers" appeared on You'll Rebel to Anything under the title "2 Hookers & an Eightball". A studio version of "Revenge" was released on their 2008 album, If. A studio version of "Last Gay Song" was released as a YouTube exclusive. An alternate studio mix was included as a bonus track on their new album, How I Learned to Stop Giving a Shit and Love Mindless Self Indulgence.
Jimmy Urine has admitted that the album was recorded on 2 DAT tapes. Due to this fact, some of the live drums (not prerecorded drums) were lost in the recording, as well as bass. MSI re-recorded guitar tracks and some vocals (when Jimmy Urine lost his breath, or any other parts where he stopped singing).
