Creator is the second album by American alternative rock band The Lemonheads. It was issued twice, as an LP in 1988, and as a CD in 1992, which included three bonus live tracks, recorded at the radio station VPRO in The Netherlands. It is one of only three albums to feature the full original lineup of Evan Dando, Ben Deily, and Jesse Peretz.

When the band first formed, Deily and Dando would swap instruments, playing guitar and singing on tracks each wrote himself, and drums for songs the other wrote. The first "official" Lemonheads drummer, Doug Trachten, was brought in for their first album Hate Your Friends. On Creator, John Strohm of the band Blake Babies plays drums on all of the original tracks, while Mark Natola played drums for the two live bonus songs at the end of the CD reissue. Also, by the time the live tracks were recorded—during the European tour supporting the Lemonheads' final TAANG! album, Lick (1989)—Deily had left the band to complete his degree at Harvard College; lead guitar on those tracks (and the voice of "Evan Dando" during the interview segment) is provided by Corey Loog Brennan.
