Music for Pleasure is the second album by the punk rock band The Damned. It was released on 18 November 1977.

It was produced by Nick Mason of Pink Floyd and featured new member Lu Edmunds on guitar alongside Brian James, as well as guest saxophonist Lol Coxhill. The album was the last studio release to feature original guitarist Brian James, and the group's final album release on Stiff Records. It saw the band move into more complex song structures, while maintaining the punk sound of their debut album. The release failed to make the UK Top 100 Album chart.

The sleeve was designed by Barney Bubbles (including the cover painting).

The band famously dislikes the album.[citation needed]

At the time of its release, the album was widely dismissed by critics as a terrible mistake.[1] Allmusic's brief retrospective review said simply "Music for Pleasure is not quite as bad as the Nick Mason production would indicate -- though close."[1]
