Copacetic is an album by Velocity Girl, released in 1993. It is their first full-length album and features the singles "Crazy Town" and "Audrey's Eyes," both of which were given music videos. The album's title derives from an American slang word meaning "everything's ok".[4] Kelly Riles described the recording of the album: "We mixed the album in a very different way than people would have expected us to—it's very rough sounding. It's a deliberate move away from the lighter production on the singles".[4]

A review in Lime Lizard at the time of its release drew comparisons with My Bloody Valentine, stating "this could be the rejected demos for Isn't Anything".[2]

The album was listed among "75 Lost Classics" in the Spring 2007 issue of Magnet.[5]
