Black 'N Blue is the eponymous debut album from the glam metal band Black 'n Blue. Recorded in March to April, 1984 and released worldwide the following August, the album includes the band's only song to chart as a single, "Hold On to 18."

The track "Chains Around Heaven" had previously appeared on the second pressing of the first Metal Massacre compilation, perhaps best known as the compilation to feature the first commercially released recording by Metallica.
