Pissed and Proud is an album of live recordings by English punk rock band, Peter and the Test Tube Babies. It was originally released in 1982 on No Future Records and was recorded at three different venues – Hammersmith, Wood Green, and their hometown, Brighton – during the August bank holiday of 1982.

Although previously the band had released a raft of singles, this was their first full length album and was followed up by Mating Sounds of South American Frogs – their first full-length studio album – in 1983. This album includes a cover version of "I'm the Leader of the Gang" – a Gary Glitter song from 1973.

Many of these songs in their studio form were re-released on Anagram Records' compilation, The Punk Singles Collection in 1995.
