"Break Like the Wind" is an album by the semi-fictional band Spinal Tap. The title track refers to a euphemism for flatulence. Released in 1992 by MCA Records, it served as a follow up to the only other Spinal Tap album, the soundtrack to the film "This Is Spinal Tap".

The songs depict the range of genres that Spinal Tap endured, from the glam metal anthem "Bitch School" down to the skiffle satire of "All the Way Home".

In the film, David St. Hubbins (portrayed by Michael McKean) and Nigel Tufnel (portrayed by Christopher Guest) claim "All the Way Home" is the first song they wrote together. Six years after it was written, David and Nigel recorded the song 14 December 1961. At this point the two were in different bands, David being in the 'Creatures' and Nigel with the 'Lovely Lads'.
