Paraphernalia is an album by Chicago natives Enuff Z'Nuff. The Cheap Trick cover "Everything Works if You Let It" features lead guitar by Billy Corgan.

Following the Adore tour, Corgan accepted the offer to collaborate on the album. He recorded guitar for two tracks, but only "Everything Works if You Let It" made the album.[2]

Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and Styx's James Young were among others who collaborated on the record, which was the first studio effort from Enuff Z'Nuff since 1997's Seven. The album artwork is an homage to Queen's second album, Queen II. "We needed [Corgan, Nielsen and Young] to show that, despite any stigmas with the Enuff Z’Nuff name, we are the real McCoy," Z'Nuff told Rolling Stone.[2]
