"Scum" is the first album by the English grindcore band Napalm Death.

The Side A of the "Scum" album was originally recorded for £50.00 at Rich Bitch studio (Birmingham, England) in August 1986: it was intended to form part of a split release with the English crossover thrash band Atavistic on Manic Ears records (Bristol, England). After an extensive line-up change, the second half of "Scum" was recorded in May 1987 at Rich Bitch studio. The album was released as a single album through Earache Records in July 1987.

The song "You Suffer" was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's shortest song; the track is precisely 1.316 seconds long.

Only drummer Mick Harris played on both sides.

The first pressing of the CD (1988) came as a 54-track CD including the From Enslavement To Obliteration album and 4 bonus tracks. In 1994, the first two albums were re-released separately.

The album cover was designed by Bill Steer's Carcass bandmate, Jeffrey Walker.The album covers came in varied colors: orange, gold, green, blue, yellow.

In 2005, it was voted the 50th best British album of all time by Kerrang! readers.

This album is listed in 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
