Shock Treatment (Original Soundtrack) is the original soundtrack to the 1981 film Shock Treatment by Richard O'Brien. A parallel movie to The Rocky Horror Picture Show as the events of that film are non-canon in Shock Treatment.

The album was produced by Richard Hartley (who also wrote, arranged, and directed the music in addition to playing keyboards). All songs from the movie are included, other than a Richard O'Brien solo version of the title track that is played during the end credits which was released separately as a 7" single instead.

The end of the "Denton, U.S.A." track additionally includes complete dialogue for the Farley Flavors' Fabulous Fast Foods commercial, and the "Breaking Out" track also has dialogue for the intro to Brad and Farley's "Duel Duet". The soundtrack includes longer versions of "Thank God I'm a Man" (re-including an omitted verse by Harry Weiss) and "Carte Blanche" (the song playing over the background speakers while Janet is in the dressing room).

Several songs from the film were originally written for Rocky Horror Shows His Heels, a never-made sequel to The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The songs were rewritten for the never-made The Brad and Janet Show and once again for Shock Treatment. Some of these songs also appeared in the 2015 musical Shock Treatment: The Musical.
