"Hold Out" is the sixth album by American singer/songwriter Jackson Browne, released in 1980 (see 1980 in music). Although critically the album has not been as well received as other Browne recordings, it remains his only album to date to reach #1 in the Billboard charts.

"Hold Out" contains the fewest tracks of any Browne studio album (seven), and for a while had the longest song in his catalog, "Hold on Hold Out", However, "Where Were You" from his latest album Time the Conqueror, is longer.

The song "Of Missing Persons" was written for Inara George, the daughter of Lowell George (formerly of the band Little Feat), a songwriting collaborator and longtime friend of Jackson Browne's who died a year prior to the release of "Hold Out". The phrase "Of Missing Persons" was derived from a line in a Little Feat song, "Long Distance Love."
