The Payback is the 40th studio album by American musician James Brown. The album was released in December 1973, by Polydor Records. It was originally scheduled to become the soundtrack for the blaxploitation film Hell Up in Harlem, but was rejected by the film's producers, who dismissed it as "the same old James Brown stuff. A widely repeated story-including by Brown himself-that director Larry Cohen rejected the music as "not funky enough" is denied by Cohen.

The Payback" is a funk song by James Brown, the title track from his 1973 album of the same name. The song's lyrics, originally written by trombonist and bandleader Fred Wesley but heavily revised by Brown himself soon before it was recorded, concern the revenge he plans to take against a man who betrayed him. The song is notable for its spare, open arrangement and its use of wah-wah guitar – a relative rarity in Brown's previous funk recordings.
The Payback album was released in December 1973, by Polydor Records. It was originally scheduled to become the soundtrack for the blaxploitation film Hell Up in Harlem, but was rejected by the film's producers. Fred Wesley recalled to Uncut in 2017: "The Payback was supposed to be the soundtrack for Hell up in Harlem, and that's why the title track was originally written. It was originally 'Revenge' but it turned out to be called 'The Payback. I had to bring all the music back to Augusta, Georgia, where he did indeed put it out as an album. Imagine someone saying The Payback isn't funky?" More songs from James Brown. More songs about revenge.
