Smash Your Head on the Punk Rock is a compilation album by the American indie rock band, Sebadoh. It was released in November, 1992, and marked the band's debut on Sub Pop.

It includes four of the eight songs from their Rocking the Forest EP, and eight of the nine songs from their Sebadoh vs Helmet EP. Both EPs were released in Europe on Domino/20/20 Recordings in early 1992. Eric Gaffney contributed the majority of the album artwork, and the title, which was lifted for a SPIN article on Nirvana in 1994, and was taken for a book title of the same name, by Matt Bissonnette.
