Run with The Pack is Bad Company's third album. It was released in 1976.

Run with The Pack was recorded in France with The Rolling Stones Mobile Truck in September 1975 with engineer Ron Nevison and mixed in Los Angeles by Eddie Kramer. The album was the only original Bad Company album not to feature artwork from Hipgnosis as it featured artwork from Kosh instead.

The album peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard's Pop Albums chart (North America) and was the band's first US Platinum certified album. It has sold to date three million copies in the US alone.

Their cover of the Coasters single "Young Blood" peaked at No. 20. The album also spawned rock radio classics "Silver, Blue and Gold", "Live For the Music", and the title track. Although "Silver, Blue and Gold" remains one of the band's most popular compositions, the song was never released as a single.

The album was remastered and re-released in 1994.

The vinyl had a shiny, silver cover, but CD versions feature a simple, dull grey cover.
