"Thunder Island" is the lead single off of the album Thunder Island by American musician Jay Ferguson. The song reached #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1978. Despite the song's high position on the music charts, the song today is rarely heard on classic rock radio stations. The recording features Joe Walsh on guitar. It appears in the 2013 film Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and the 2004 film Miracle.

As this was Ferguson's highest-ranking song on the charts, he is sometimes tagged a one-hit wonder- however, he achieved an additional hit with the song "Shakedown Cruise" in 1979, which reached #31 on the Hot 100.
