Rites of Spring is the only studio album by American post-hardcore band Rites of Spring. It was recorded at Inner Ear Studios in February 1985 and released on vinyl in June 1985 as Dischord Records #16. The album was produced by Ian MacKaye and contains twelve songs.

The album was listed at number 30 on Kurt Cobain's top 50 favorite albums. Pitchfork online magazine ranked it number 96 on its list of the Top 100 Albums of the 1980s.

Influenced by The Faith, Rites of Spring continued to combine desperate introspective lyrics with angry melody-tinged songwriting that moved even further from the hardcore formula.
