Koza nostra (transliteration for "Cosa Nostra", also a word play, with "koza" meaning goat in Serbian) is the tenth studio album from Serbian and former Yugoslav rock band Riblja Čorba, released in 1990.

Koza nostra is the first studio album recorded with guitarist Zoran Ilić, who came to Riblja Čorba as a replacement for Nikola Čuturilo. The song "Al Kapone" featured Branimir Štulić and Azra members on backing vocals. "Gde si u ovom glupom hotelu" featured former Suncokret (Riblja Čorba's frontman Bora Đorđević's former band) members Gorica Popović, Snežana Jandrlić and Biljana Krstić on backing vocals. Keyboards on the album were played by Bajaga i Instruktori member Saša Lokner.

The album hits included a cover of Chuck Berry's song "Memphis, Tennessee", Riblja Čorba version entitled "Crna Gora, Bar", the punk rock song "Deca", and "Tito je vaš", which directly ridiculed late Yugoslav president Josip Broz Tito.

Album cover[edit]

The album cover was designed by the band's guitarist Zoran Ilić, and is one of two Riblja Čorba album covers which were not designed by Jugoslav Vlahović (the other one being Osmi nervni slom cover).
