Barenaked Lunch (often known as The Pink Tape due to its pink J-card) is the second demo tape recorded by Barenaked Ladies. It was the first release to feature bassist Jim Creeggan and percussionist Andy Creeggan in addition to founding members Steven Page and Ed Robertson. About 2,000 copies of the tape were made, and were typically sold by the band as merch at concerts.

The final tape was accidentally mastered at the wrong speed, resulting in the audio sounding about a semitone too high in pitch. A speed-corrected version of "Night Photographs" was eventually released in 1997 on The Ladies Room, Vol. 1, the first in a series of CD releases exclusive to the band's fan club.
