Tapdancin' Bats is an album by the band NRBQ. It was released in 1983.

The album is composed entirely of archival material. At the time of production, NRBQ were signed to Bearsville Records and the label's owner, Albert Grossman, did not want NRBQ to record more albums for the label, but also would not let them out of their contract.[2] NRBQ had amassed enough archival material to compile several future albums and used some of this material for Tapdancin' Bats.
