"Mushroom" is a song by the krautrock band Can, on their 1971 album Tago Mago. The track lasts for 4 minutes and 8 seconds, which is relatively short by Can's standards. A video was made for the track which has been shown on MTV.

On Can vocalist Damo Suzuki's 1998 solo album V.E.R.N.I.S.S.A.G.E, a new version of this song is performed along with "Halleluhwah", another song originally from Tago Mago. His band at the time featured Can's Jaki Liebezeit on drums.

The Serbian and former Yugoslav space rock band Igra Staklenih Perli covered the song on their eponymous debut album in 1979.

The song was covered by the band The Jesus and Mary Chain and is featured on the CD version of Barbed Wire Kisses.

The Flaming Lips' song "Take Meta Mars" from In a Priest Driven Ambulance is closely modeled on "Mushroom".
