Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School is the fourth album by American rock singer/songwriter Warren Zevon, released on February 15, 1980.

"Play It All Night Long" is a satire/homage to the dead band's song (Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama"). It is probably the only popular song ever written which contains a reference to brucellosis.
