Drum 'n' Bass for Papa is an album by the experimental electronic music artist Luke Vibert under his alias of Plug. The album was originally released on vinyl in 1996 (see 1996 in music) by Blue Planet Recordings. The alias Plug was used by Vibert to release Drum 'n' Bass oriented music.

The album has gone through several different releases. The first was a compact disc release with additional bonus tracks titled Drum 'N' Bass for Papa + Special Edition CD; it had different cover art and the discs were colored dark blue instead of the original sepia tone.[6] The photograph on the cover is of Frank Vibert, Luke's grandfather, who was a keen amateur magician.

The album was released again on Trent Reznor's label Nothing Records on 9 September 1997, it was a double album on compact disc that included the three EPs Plug released. This version of the album had the same cover as the Special Edition version but changed "Special Edition" to "+plug ep's 1,2, & 3" for the title. It was released under the title Drum 'N' Bass for Papa +plug EPs 1, 2 & 3. The other difference in this version was that the import included the track "The Life of the Mind" that wasn't included on the album due to problems with a sample clearance.[7] The sample in question was John Goodman's screaming freakout from the film Barton Fink.

In 2007, Plug's material was remastered by Vibert from the original DATs and released on bleep.com in mp3 and FLAC formats.[1][permanent dead link]
