Data Bank is the thirteen track (tenth song) on The Time's fourth album Pandemonium, and is written and produced by Prince (but credited to The Time).

Basic tracking took place on 17 June 1986 at the Washington Avenue Warehouse in Eden Prairie, Minnesota (in sequence before Can't Stop This Feeling I Got and We Can Funk, the day before Girl O' My Dreams). The track was re-recorded with Morris Day on lead vocals in Summer 1989, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, when Prince and Morris Day worked on the projected fourth album by The Time, Corporate World, which later morphed into Pandemonium.
