Mutiny/The Bad Seed is a compilation album by The Birthday Party. It is compiled from 2 EPs recorded in October 1982 and released in 1983, The Bad Seed and Mutiny!, and was released in 1989. It is written by Nick Cave, Mick Harvey, Rowland S. Howard, and Tracy Pew.

These are the band's final studio recordings, and the only studio recordings made after the departure of drummer Phill Calvert. The album marks the first collaboration with Cave's longtime collaborator Blixa Bargeld, who played guitar on Mutiny in Heaven. The compilation adds two tracks not included on the Mutiny EP, "Pleasure Avalanche" and "Six Strings That Drew Blood," the latter recorded by the Bad Seeds.
