Rubicon is the eponymous debut album from the late-1970s funk rock band Rubicon (formed by Jerry Martini from Sly & the Family Stone and featuring future Night Ranger members Jack Blades on bass and Brad Gillis on guitars). Released on 20th Century Fox in 1978, it featured the band's one and only hit single (leading them to be categorized as a one hit wonder), the Max Haskett-penned "I'm Gonna Take Care Of Everything" (highest Billboard peak: 28 in 1978).

In 2009, it was reissued as part of a combo pack with their next (and final) album, "American Dreams" by Renaissance Records.
