Dark at the End of the Tunnel is the sixth studio album by Oingo Boingo, released in 1990. It is the first collection of all new material released by the band since their 1987 album Boi-ngo. Although the band's Ska and New Wave elements remain in songs such as "Run Away" and "Flesh 'N Blood", the album marks Oingo Boingo's move towards alternative rock.

The cover art of the album is a portion of a painting entitled "Volcano", by artist Peter Zokosky.[2]
