The Modern Lovers is the debut studio album by American rock band the Modern Lovers. It was released on Beserkley Records in 1976, although the original nine tracks had been recorded in 1972 (or 1971 in the case of "Hospital"). Six of the original tracks were produced by John Cale. In 2003, the album was ranked number 381 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The artwork says the recordings are from 1971, but they were actually recorded in 1972. Another set of demos, produced by Kim Fowley, were released as the band's "second album", The Original Modern Lovers, in 1981.

The Modern Lovers was an American rock band led by Jonathan Richman in the 1970s and 1980s. The original band existed from 1970 to 1974 but their recordings were not released until 1976 or later. It featured Richman and bassist Ernie Brooks with drummer David Robinson (later of The Cars) and keyboardist Jerry Harrison (later of Talking Heads). The sound of the band owed a great deal to the influence of the Velvet Underground, and is now sometimes classed as "proto-punk".

Several bootlegs also contain songs not released on either album. Bomp's repackaging dates the Fowley tapes to the spring of 1972, which Richman's liner notes sharply dispute. Curiously, the CD booklet doesn't address his point, despite two takes of "Roadrunner" - one of rock's greatest drive-all-night songs - that distinctly differ in performance.

Not as good as the 1976 release, but with a sloppy energy that makes me smile. "Roadrunner" is a punk tour de force; the mangled "Astral Plane" segues into the pounding, manic "Walk Up The Street" with throbbing, singing guitar; "Don't Let Our Youth Go To Waste" is a bizarre a cappella number that could be a (comprehensibly drunk, American-accented) Shane MacGowan extemporization; and "Dance with Me" is a dirge-y Velvet Underground-esque tune about sex.
