Corporate America is the fifth studio album by American hard rock band Boston, released in 2002. In addition to studio material, it also features a live version of "Livin' for You". The original version is from Boston's previous full-length album Walk On (1994).

The album also introduced both Anthony Cosmo and Kimberley Dahme as both band members and songwriters. This is also the last Boston album to feature lead vocalist and founding member Brad Delp during his lifetime as he would commit suicide in 2007.

The album sold 32,000 copies in its first week of release and charted at 42 on the Billboard 200. By 2013, the album had sold 139,000 copies in the US.

The final page of the album's booklet is dedicated to preserving the environment, providing web links to such organizations as PETA.
