Nothing Can Stop Us is a compilation album by Robert Wyatt released in 1982. Consisting primarily of tracks released as singles and B-sides during the late 1970s and early '80s, it only contains one Wyatt composition (the opening track "Born Again Cretin").

For other people named Robert Wyatt, see Robert Wyatt (disambiguation). In 1983, his original version of Elvis Costello and Clive Langer's Falklands War-inspired song "Shipbuilding", which followed a series of political cover-versions (collected as Nothing Can Stop Us), reached number 35 in the UK Singles Chart and number 2 in John Peel's Festive Fifty for tracks from that year.

The tracks have since been reissued a few times, with bonus tracks such as the "Shipbuilding" single; the best option for . consumers is Compilation, which pairs Nothing Can Stop Us with Old Rottenhat.

Every decade or so, Robert Wyatt's discography comes around again; this new batch of reissues (the first of two) has apparently been prompted by the release of For the Ghosts Within a few weeks ago. Any excuse will do, really. So the material that ended up on 1982's Nothing Can Stop Us was a surprise. Most of the album collects a series of four brilliant cover singles Wyatt recorded in quick succession in early 1980.

Sleeve notes:
"You may notice some technical inadequacies in some of my performances - a hesitant beat here, a dodgy note there - these are of course entirely deliberate and reproduced as evidence of my almost painful sincerity" (Robert Wyatt)

N.B: on "America Conquers Britain" by Ludwell Denny in 1930: 'We shall not make Britain's mistake. Too wise to try to govern the world, we shall merely own it. Nothing can stop us.'
