What Did You Expect from The Vaccines? is the debut studio album by English indie rock band The Vaccines. It was released on 11 March 2011 by Columbia Records, entering the UK Albums Chart at going on to become the biggest-selling debut by a band in 2011.

The Vaccines certainly don't have the former – they are the mainstream – and when they don't have the latter, as on Wreckin' Bar, the dreary Under Your Thumb and All in White, you start to wonder not just where the hype came from, but what the point is. You spend at least a third of the album thinking that, which leaves two-thirds where, if what's on offer is absolutely nothing new, the songwriting sticks.

Britain’s Vaccines hit in a big way across the pond with their singles-laden debut, What Did You Expect From the Vaccines? Their brand of post-punk-rooted commercial rock fits in nicely with bands like the Strokes and Arctic Monkeys, though the Vaccines’ occasional foray into a big, fist-pumping guitar sound ( All In White, Post Break-Up Sex ), might put off some stalwart indie-rockers.

Wreckin' Bar (ra ra ra)" is the brilliantly unabated surge of magically dumb garage rock we'd been warned to expect.

The Vaccines’ debut album is an enjoyable listen primarily due to the catchiness of many of the songs. The wonderfully catchy ‘If You Wanna’ and the Stone Roses-esque ‘All In White’ are highlights though each of the songs carries with it the enthusiasm that fuels the album. There is polishing to be done, but The Vaccines can truly grow to emulate the successes of so many of the bands whose memory is evoked by them.

Released March 11, 2011. What Did You Expect from the Vaccines? Tracklist. The 6 singles from the album are Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra), released on November 22, 2010, Post Break-Up Sex released on January 24, 2011, If You Wanna released on March 14, 2011, All in White released on June 5, 2011, Nørgaard released on August 22, 2011 and finally, Wetsuit released on December 11, 2011.

That’s the overarching theme of their debut album What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? -a collection of songs emerging as slightly kitschy, largely catchy and entirely enjoyable. Often bands that come so close to recreating their influences run the risk of regurgitating lesser forms of their predecessors’ works, but that’s not the case with The Vaccines.
