Elevator is a 1979 rock album by the Bay City Rollers. Having replaced longtime lead singer Les McKeown with Duncan Faure, the group shortened their name to simply The Rollers, and pursued a more rocking, power-pop sound than their previous work.

The album, released by Arista, was poorly received. Neither the album itself or any single releases would hit the charts.

The album was reissued on CD in 2008, with no bonus cuts however.
