Upon Us is the second album by the rock music group Taproot. It was released in 1999. This album is notable for featuring highlights of material from their first album ...Something More Than Nothing and the hard-to-find EP Mentobe. A use of electronics and samples is evident on this album as well, showing a somewhat more progressive, matured and melodic side, separating Taproot from the rest of the nu metal pack.

Like ...Something More Than Nothing, this album is difficult to find, but often can be found on fan forums, blogs, and torrent sites.
