The Mountain Goats - All Hail West Texas album cover
 All Hail West Texas is an album by The Mountain Goats. After the slight increase in production values on 2000's The Coroner's Gambit, All Hail West Texas is, as of 2005, the last Mountain Goats album on which all the songs were recorded on John Darnielle's trademark Panasonic RX-FT500 boombox.

The album is loosely a concept album, with the cover stating that the album consists of "fourteen songs about seven people, two houses, a motorcycle, and a locked treatment facility for adolescent boys". Many of the songs explicitly reference places in Texas, and evoke a lifestyle ethos born of the vast expanses of desert and highway found in West Texas itself.

Several songs were written to appear on the record that were not included in its final version. These unreleased tracks include "Song for God", "Warm Lonely Planet", and "Waco", and have only been performed infrequently live.
