Breaking All the Rules is the seventh studio album by Peter Frampton, released in 1981.


The Breaking All the Rules album had featured a raw live in the studio approach like its predecessor Rise Up, which was released to promote Frampton's concert tour in Brazil in 1980. The album had won airplay for its anthemic title track, which was co-written with Procol Harum lyricist Keith Reid.
