"Papa's Got a Brand New Pigbag" is a 1981 instrumental performed by the British dance-punk band Pigbag. The instrumental was written by Pigbag, who produced it, along with, Dave Hunt and Dick O'Dell. Initially, "Papa's Got a Brand new Pigbag" hit number 2 on the UK underground charts. In the US, the instrumental was released as an import on the Rough Trade label, where it made to number 56 on the dance chart. A 1982 re-release of "Papa's Got a Brand New Pigbag" went to number 3 in the UK. Whilst the track is well known for its brass riff, the bassline of the track was also ranked by Stylus Magazine at number 40 in their 2005 list of the "Top 50 Basslines of All Time".

The piece's title is a play on the James Brown song "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag".
