Ego Is Not a Dirty Word was the second album released by Australian band Skyhooks in mid-1975. The album was the follow-up to their highly successful album, Living in the Seventies. As with the former album, it was also produced by Ross Wilson.
The album spent 11 weeks at the number one spot in the Australian album charts in 1975 and sold 180,000 copies. Two singles were lifted from the album, "Ego Is Not a Dirty Word" and "All My Friends are Getting Married".
Greg Macainsh penned (or in the case of "Love on the Radio", co-wrote, with original singer Steve Hill) every song except "Every Chase a Steeple", which was written by guitarist Red Symons. Unlike on other Symons-written tracks "Smut" and "Mumbo Jumbo", lead singer Graham Strachan provided vocals.
The American release of the album contained "Horror Movie" and "You Just Like Me 'Cause I'm Good in Bed" from their first album in place of tracks 9 and 10.
The album was re-released by Mushroom Records in 1997.
