B.R.M.C. is the self-titled debut studio album by American rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, released on Virgin Records on April 3, 2001. The album's success helped link the band closely to the garage rock revival that spawned in the early 2000s.

The first 35 seconds of "Love Burns" incorporates a section of the song "TV Loop (Deep Down)", later released on the "Whatever Happened to My Rock and Roll (Punk Song)" double-7-inch single and on the Screaming Gun EP.

"Spread Your Love" was used in 2003 Vin Diesel film A Man Apart and features in the TV show Skins. It has also been used in a series of commercials for Ketel One vodka as well as The Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas. The NME rated the song as the 27th best song of 2002.
