Take Them On, On Your Own is the second album by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. It was released in 2003.

The album has a darker, harder rock sound than their debut album, and also contains more politically themed lyrics. The album reached #3 in the United Kingdom music charts despite receiving mixed reviews, and is almost universally credited as a lesser achievement than its predecessor B.R.M.C..

The album cover is a homage to the film The Third Man.

This album has been released with the Copy Control protection system in some regions.
