Bivouac is the second studio album by American punk band Jawbreaker, released on Tupelo Recording Company and Communion Records in 1992 on CD, LP and cassette.[6]

In contrast to their later albums which were entirely written by Schwarzenbach, Bivouac has been described as Jawbreaker’s “most collaborative” album; the songs “Sleep”, “P.S. New York is Burning”, and “Like a Secret” were written “in full or in part” by bassist Chris Bauermeister, while “Parabola” was a collaborative effort between all three band members. The tracks “You Don’t Know…” and “Pack It Up” are covers. The former was recorded and co-written by Joan Jett and released on her album Bad Reputation under its full title, “You Don’t Know What You’ve Got.” “Pack It Up” is a variation of the song of the same name from The Pretenders’ second eponymous album with the lyrics rewritten, retaining only the music and the phrase, “You guys are the pits of the world.” Bivouac is the only Jawbreaker studio album to have had any cover songs on its original release.
