Bob Mould (sometimes referred to as Hubcap) is the third solo album by former Hüsker Dü and Sugar guitarist and singer Bob Mould. It was recorded and mixed between September & November 1995 and released in April 1996. Mould played all of the instruments on the album himself, and the sleeve notes declare, "This one is for me." In the place of traditional band credits, the sleeve states, "Bob Mould is Bob Mould."

The song "Dog on Fire," which was chosen to be the theme song of The Daily Show, was originally written for this album. [1]

Referring to the provocatively titled 'I Hate Alternative Rock', Mould remarked, "Don't go blaming me for Bush. It's not my fault."[2]
