"Ganging Up On The Sun" is the fifth studio album by rock band Guster. It was released on June 20, 2006, with the singles "Manifest Destiny" being released in late 2005 and "One Man Wrecking Machine" being released in March 2006. It is Guster's second studio album with Joe Pisapia, his first as a full member. The name of the album, "Ganging up on the Sun", comes from a line in the song "Manifest Destiny" which says, "The moon and stars are ganging up on the sun... rebellion."

The album became Guster's most successful release to date, debuting on the Billboard Top 200 Albums at #25 (topping "Keep It Together"'s #38 debut in 2003). It won Album of the Year (Major) at the Boston Music Awards in 2006.
