"Sweet F.A." is the sixth album by the British band Love and Rockets, released in 1996 on American Recordings.

"Sweet F.A." mostly exchanged "Hot Trip to Heaven"'s electronic sound for a harder rock sound showcasing more conventional songwriting. Despite the presence of loud guitars common to the airwaves in the late 1990s ("Sweet Lover Hangover" was a minor alternative radio hit), the album follows the structure of a classic head album, growing more experimental and disjointed as it progresses, culminating in the aggressive electronic dance of "Here Come the Comedown" and the chaotic "Spiked."

The title refers to "Sweet Fuck-All," a modern variant of "Sweet Fanny Adams," which is common British naval slang for "nothing." "Fuck all else" is prominently sung by Daniel Ash throughout the title track.

"Natacha" was written for Natacha Atlas, a friend of the band who appeared on Ash's first solo album.
