Gung Ho is an album by Patti Smith, released March 21, 2000 on Arista Records. The song "New Party" was used as the official song for the 2000 Ralph Nader's presidential campaign. Song "Glitter in Their Eyes" was nominated for Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance in 2001.

The record was included in Rolling Stone's "Top 50 Albums of 2000".

This is the first Patti Smith album to not include Smith on the cover (it was, instead, a picture of her father, Grant Smith).
