In My Tribe is an album by folk-rock band 10,000 Maniacs. It was their second major-label album and their first to achieve large-scale success. John Lombardo, Natalie Merchant's songwriting partner on previous albums, left the band in 1986. Merchant began collaborating with the other members of the band, most notably with Robert Buck.
In 1989, the track "Peace Train" was removed at Natalie Merchant's insistence from the U.S. CD version after the song's composer, Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens) made statements interpreted as supporting Ayatollah Khomeini's fatwa against Salman Rushdie. The song remains on vinyl copies and CDs released outside the United States. The song was later included in a 2-CD compilation, Campfire Songs: The Popular, Obscure and Unknown Recordings, released on January 27, 2004 by Elektra/Asylum/Rhino Records.
