Zig Zag is the fourth studio album by American rock band The Hooters and was released in 1989. With Zig Zag, The Hooters moved toward a more political and folk music direction, contrasting significantly with their previous light-hearted songs. On this album, the songs dealt with the death of a friend, the demise of vinyl records and intrusion of technology, homelessness, a tribute to their own friendship, and even Beijing's Tiananmen Square protests of 1989.

This release shows the Hooters trying to modernize their sound from the over-romantic power pop of their previous efforts (e.g., "And We Danced"): a little more dirt, a little less gloss, a little more personal expression. The songwriting has gotten better in places here as well, still delivering infectious pop hooks with more sophisticated lyrics particularly on songs like "Brother, Don't You Walk Away," "You Never Know Who Your Friends Are," and "Deliver Me." They do go over the top with the heavy metal ballads so popular in the late '80s; "Always a Place" and "Give the Music Back" reek of over-sentimentality. And "Mr. Big Baboon" has got to be one of the most stupid songs to come out of 1989. The white reggae version of "500 Miles" featuring Peter, Paul, and Mary – a very uncharacteristic Hooters tune – alone makes the record worthwhile, however. They still show off their non-traditional auxiliary instrumentation in places: mandolin, accordion, harmonium, this time with a little more class.
