(Music From) The Mystery Rabbits is an alternative/funk/metal debut album by the pop group Sack Trick. Metal Hammer described it as "Like the funk rock record Frank Zappa and Monty Python never made". The subjects of the songs include tomato sandwiches, camels, ice cream and a "strange cigarette", interwoven with a rhyme called Little Pigs being sung in four different languages. Probably the best known song from the album is I Play Bass, a slap-bass rich confessional from Chris Dale, the band's frontman.

The album's title is likely to have been inspired by Music from "The Elder" by Kiss, which the band covered on their third album, Sheep in Kiss Make Up
