The Swing is Australian rock band INXS's fourth studio album, released in 1984. The lead single "Original Sin" was recorded in New York City with Nile Rodgers and featured Daryl Hall on backing vocals. Overall, the album featured a slightly harder-edged sound than their previous releases.
It enjoyed long-term success on the Australian music charts, remaining in the top 50 selling albums for over 2 years. It remained relatively unknown in the United States, however, where it was their next album, Listen Like Thieves, that made them a worldwide name.

A cassette of remixes, Dekadance, was also released in Australia.
