Pink Champagne (first named Kasern 9) was a Swedish feminist punk band in the 1980s. It consisted of four women, Stina Berge (drums), Ann Carlberger (vocals), Karin Jansson (guitar) and Gunilla Welin (bass). Kajsa Grytt was briefly a member. They released two full-length albums, Vackra pojke! (Beautiful Boy!, 1981) and Kärlek eller ingenting (Love or Nothing, 1983), before breaking up in 1984.

Karin Jansson and Ann Carlberger went to Australia in 1987. Karin dated and became the domestic partner of Steve Kilbey of The Church and co-wrote their hit song Under the Milky Way. Karin became mother to two daughters by Kilbey, and formed the band Curious (Yellow) on Red Eye Records. Karin wrote the melody for the song "Youth Worshipper" which appears on The Church's "Heyday" album.

Ann was with Marty Willson-Piper, the guitarist of The Church.

Stina Berge started writing children books and released a solo album in 2008. Kajsa Grytt became a leading member of Tant Strul.

The albums were released under the MNW label.
