You Shouldn't-Nuf Bit Fish is the second studio album by American funk musician George Clinton. The album was released by Capitol Records in 1983, during the same week that the CBS Associated Label released Urban Dancefloor Guerillas by the P-Funk All-Stars. The P-Funk live concert tour of 1984 concentrated on tracks featured on both albums. You Shouldn't-Nuf Bit Fish expands on the R&B and dance style of Clinton's debut album, Computer Games (1982), and it incorporates elements of rock with a more mainstream sound.[5]
