"Pub" (trans. "Jack") is the first solo album released by Serbian and former Yugoslav musician Đorđe Balašević.

Album featured hits "Ratnik paorskog srca" which tells of a peasant who returns form World War I and who "wasn't made to be a soldier", "Za sve je kriv Toma Sojer" which tells of three boys which ran away from home influenced by "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer", "Boža zvani Pub" which tells of a legendary gambler nicknamed Pub ("Jack"), ballad "Lepa protina kći". Song "Pesma o jednom petlu" went on to become one of Balašević's signature pieces. It tells a story of an old man's younger days in the farm-rich area of Vojvodina when he had a pet rooster. The rooster is a metaphor for his male sexual organ for which female birds tend to go crazy. The lyrics go on to list different kinds of female birds which in turn depict stereotypical characteristics of women in Serbo-Croatian slang. Refrain line "Princip je isti, sve su ostalo nijanse" ("The principle is the same, everything else is nuances") referring to the way of courting the opposite sex. The lyrics conclude in man's later years as he misses the good times gone by and giving advice never to make your rooster suffer, to let him fly around so that female birds can see him, for afterwards it will be too late, because even roosters have a life span.
