Your Mamma Won't Like Me is the third studio album by Suzi Quatro.[4] Released in 1975, the album marked a change in the hard rock sound from the singer's previous albums Suzi Quatro and Quatro, instead displaying a more funk oriented rock sound.

In 2012, the album was re-issued and digitally remastered by 7T's Records in the UK, along with her other studio albums.[2] This particular re-issue contains bonus tracks and some rare pictures.[1]
