On the Mouth is Superchunk's third studio album. It was recorded September 14-20, 1992, at West Beach Studios, engineered by Donnell Cameron, and produced by John Reis and Superchunk. It was released by Matador Records in 1993.

This album marked the debut of drummer Jon Wurster, who replaced Chuck "Chunk" Garrison.

The band also has a song called "On The Mouth," but it is not on this album. It first appeared as b-side for the single version of "Mower."

Fucked Up and Tom Scharpling, of Scharpling and Wurster fame, covered Precision Auto at the Matador at 21 festival in Las Vegas.

American alternative rock band Jimmy Eat World covered "Precision Auto" for its 2010 album Invented.
