Grade 8 is the self-titled debut album by American nu metal/rap metal music group Grade 8. It was released on February 11, 2003 via Lava Records. The album failed to gain commercial success and resulted in Grade 8 being dropped from Lava. Grade 8 features a pummeling rap metal style with thunderous, staccato riffing in B tuning and harshly delivered rapping. Songs contain chugging double bass as well as moody, atmospheric sections.

Snarling vocals, chain-saw unison guitar and bass, thundering drums - all the essential elements erupt from each track of grade 8's brutal debut. Relief from this assault is rare and momentary: for example, the guitar that opens "Get It Out" is not sadistically overdriven, though Dustin Tooker drops his low E string down to a D to make his arpeggios as ominous as possible. In any event, within seconds listeners are cranked back up to the max, with Ryan Tooker racing past his rapped opening for another throat-ripping exhibition.

Frontman Dustin Tooker explained, "It’s just an honest expression of how we feel. We wrote a record we’re huge fans of, just being music fans. Lyrically, Grade 8 contains aggressive prose of confrontation and perseverance
