Nice 'n' Greasy is the fifth studio album by British rock band Atomic Rooster.

In the US, the record was issued on Elektra in a different sleeve (pictured) to most territories and retitled Atomic Rooster IV, as their first album, Atomic Roooster, failed to secure a US release. The US album also had a somewhat different tracklist to the UK version. The German release followed the US track listing, but with a phallic art sleeve.[2][3] It was further reissued in Germany in 1977, this time in yet another new sleeve and retitled This is Atomic Rooster Vol. 2.[4]
