"Espionage" is a spy-themed instrumental song by Green Day. It was originally released as a B-side and the third track of the "Hitchin' a Ride" single, then on the soundtrack for Austin Powers, and then again as the sixth track of Shenanigans.

"Espionage" features spy-themed instruments: the guitars are James Bond-esque all throughout, and the trumpet (played by David Campbell) is also played in the later part of this song. "Espionage" is the second instrumental song from Green Day, the first being "Last Ride In".

"Espionage" was nominated in the 2000 Grammy Awards for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.
