Frank Zappa Meets the Mothers of Prevention is a 1985 album by Frank Zappa. The album was originally released in two slightly different versions in the US and Europe. The album's title is a reference to the lobby group, the PMRC, who were campaigning to require record companies to put warning stickers on albums they considered offensive, and to Zappa's former band, the Mothers of Invention.

The album title and the track "Porn Wars" both reference the Parents Musi. Because Zappa felt that the songs which referenced the PMRC hearings wouldn't make sense to an European audience note despite the fact that they were reported by international media at the time he released a different version of the album, with a slightly different cover (white letters on a black background) and a different tracklist for the European market. Porn Wars" was kept off the album and replaced by three tracks not present on the American version: "I Don't Even Care", "One Man - One Vote" and ".
