"Bad Influence" is a 1983 blues album by the blues singer-songwriter and guitarist Robert Cray. Released with Hightone Records, this was the album thought to have put Cray on the map, prior to his explosion into the mainstream with "Strong Persuader" in 1986.

It was his second release, and contained two cover versions: Johnny Guitar Watson's "Don't Touch Me" and Eddie Floyd's "Got To Make A Comeback". The most well-known and memorable song off the album was probably the slow blues song, "Phone Booth". The album runs 41 minutes and 57 seconds.
