Old Money is a studio album by Omar Rodríguez-López released by Stones Throw Records in November 2008, and is the musician's first album on that label. Rodríguez-López explained that the album is "loosely based on the concept of exploitative industrialists and, well, their old money." Stones Throw Records released the vinyl version of the album on February 6, 2009.

Rodriguez-Lopez has hinted that this record was a potential follow up to the 2006 The Mars Volta studio album Amputechture until he changed his musical direction. Many songs share similarities with previous Mars Volta live jams.

Review aggregate site Metacritic calculates a score of 70/100 for the album, but erroneously referred to it as "The debut album for the Mars Volta guitarist".

In the song "I Like Rockefellers' First Two Albums, But After That...", there is a dialog from the movie El Topo, from Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky.
