Instrumental Songs for the Vocally Challenged is the debut studio album of Popscene, released 2 August 1996. The album uses elements of post-punk and experimental music, and, as the name suggests, is almost entirely instrumental, with the exception of the song 'Talk To Me Now'.

A Tone Factory poll voted it #2, in the list of 'Best Lovian Albums of the 1990s', only to Freedom Is An Opinion/Critters by Nothing The Black Celebration.

In 2012, the band released The Vocally Challenged Remix Album, which features remixes of all the songs.
