Captain Morgan's Revenge is the debut album by the Scottish power metal band Alestorm, released in 2008 by Napalm Records.

Drums were recorded by Migo Wagner, a session drummer, because Ian Wilson could not travel to Germany for the recordings, although he did make minor contributions to the album by recording some additional percussion. "Heavy Metal Pirates" was re-recorded during the same sessions but left off the album and later released as a digital download and on the Leviathan EP.
