The Snake is the first solo album by Shane MacGowan with backing band The Popes. Released in 1994 by ZTT Records. Guests on the album include Johnny Depp, members of The Chieftains, Thin Lizzy, and The Pogues.

The 1995 US edition featured a revised running order, and also added three additional tracks: the traditional songs "Nancy Whiskey" and "Roddy McCorley", as well as the Sinéad O'Connor duet "Haunted", an old Pogues song originally sung by Cait O'Riordan for the Sid & Nancy soundtrack. The 1996 edition adds another duet, "You're the one", this time with Clannad's Máire Brennan, from the soundtrack to the film "Circle of Friends".

Like a number of songs recorded by MacGowan's previous band, The Pogues, traditional tunes are sometimes used as a base for a new song (for example, the melody for "The Song With No Name" is based on "The Homes of Donegal").[1]
