Sweat Band is the title of the 1980 debut album by the P-Funk spin off act the Sweat Band. The album was the first official release on the Uncle Jam Records label, formed by George Clinton and his business manager Archie Ivy, and distributed by CBS Records. The band was formed by P-Funk bassist Bootsy Collins after losing the rights to the name Rubber Band to a folk music group of the same name. The album features many of the same musicians and singers from Bootsy's Rubber Band. The album was released during the same week as Ultra Wave, Collins' fifth album for Warner Bros. Records.
The album was produced by Bootsy Collins, while George Clinton serves as executive producer. The album was reissued on CD by CBS/Sony Records in Japan on May 21,1994, but quickly went out of print soon after.

“Although Id lie lapped up in linen
A deal Id sweat and little earn
If I should live as live the neighbours,
Cried the beggar, Billy Byrne....”

The hills and waters oer,
When a band of exiles moored their bark
On the wild New England shore.”
