Jukebox is the eighth album by American singer/songwriter Chan Marshall, also known by her stage name, Cat Power. It was released on January 22, 2008 on Matador Records. A limited-edition silver foil deluxe package was also released containing a bonus disc with five extra songs.

The album is composed almost entirely of cover songs, save for "Song to Bobby" and "Metal Heart" ("Metal Heart" was previously recorded and released in 1998). This is Marshall's second record of cover songs; her first, The Covers Record, was released in 2000.
