Palabas is the debut album of Filipino rock band Sponge Cola. It was released on October 18, 2004 under Sony Music Philippines.

This album contains some songs that the band members made even before they were officially formed. The album is made up of a well-balanced mix of rock and mellow. The abundance of Tagalog tracks made the album an instant hit for fans and non-fans as well.

In 2005, Sponge Cola released a repackaged edition of the album with a bonus CD that contains the music video of "Gemini", and some bonus audio tracks, including a remastered version of "Gemini", acoustic versions of "KLSP" and "Jeepney", and an unreleased track titled "Boundless".

The singles from the album are "KLSP", "Lunes", "Gemini", "Una", and "Jeepney".

Palabas means a "show / program" or "to come out" in Tagalog.

The Single "Dragonfly", although not part of the official song releases (until April 2006 as an online single), was praised by listeners online, and had lots of followers soon after, even up to this day.

In December 2013,Palabas & Transit collection was released with the standard edition of Palabas and the Deluxe version of Transit.
