Fubar: The Album is the companion record/soundtrack to the 2002 Canadian film FUBAR: The Movie.

The protagonists of the film are two head bangers; for the album, several contemporary Canadian rock bands were asked to record cover versions of Canadian heavy metal and hard rock hits from that era to complement the film. Artists who participated were diverse, ranging from major acts such as Sum 41 to lesser-known artists such as heavy-metal veteran Thor and indie rock notables The New Pornographers. Also heavily featured was the fictional band Creeper.[1]

The album also includes two non-Canadian songs (Sweet's "Blockbuster" and Girlschool's "C'Mon Let's Go") presented in their original versions. The songs are also interspersed with bits of dialogue from the film. The covers are not actually heard in the film itself; only the original and non-Canadian songs appear in the film.
