Take Them On, On Your Own is the second studio album by American rock Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. It was released in 2003 and reIssued in 2008.[6] The album cover is a homage to the film The Third Man.

The album has a darker, harder rock sound than their debut album, and also contains more politically themed lyrics. The album reached #3 in the United Kingdom music charts despite receiving mixed reviews, and is almost universally credited as a lesser achievement than its predecessor B.R.M.C..

The 2003 release of this album contained the Copy Control protection system in some regions.[7][8] The Japanese 2008 reIssued CD contains three bonus tracks: "Take Them On, On Your Own", "High / Low", and "Waiting Here".[9]
