I Just Can't Stop It is the debut album by UK 2 tone band The Beat. The album was released in 1980 via Go Feet Records in the UK. It was released the same year in the US on I.R.S. Records under the name "The English Beat".

Well received from the start, critics such as Rolling Stone raved that the music was "wild and threatening, sexy and sharp."[3] And Allmusic later said "[it] was a stunning achievement", which has been undiminished by time.[1]

The song "Mirror in the Bathroom" featured in the film Grosse Pointe Blank (1997) and in "RocknRolla" (2008). The song "Hands Off...She's Mine" featured in the film 50 First Dates (2004).
