Fobia is an album released by Mexican rock band Fobia. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1990; the songs are primarily themed around common phobias and anxieties, filled with dark humor and melodic music inspired by British bands like The Cure. Songs like Los muñecos and Las moscas deal with the fear of dolls and flies respectively. Other songs like Dios bendiga a los gusanos and El crucifijo deal with the anxieties of love. El microbito delivers humor and a quick change of pace towards the album's finale, it is worth noting that the songs listed above are all hits.

The band received critical and commercial success, added to the fact that Rock en español was going through a revival at the time and new bands seemed to come out of the woodwork.

The original lineup was:

  • Leonardo de Lozanne (voice)
  • Cha! (bass)
  • Francisco Huidobro (guitar)
  • Gabriel Kuri (drums)
  • Iñaki (keyboards)
