Apathy and Exhaustion is the third album by the Chicago, Illinois punk rock band The Lawrence Arms, released in 2002 by Fat Wreck Chords. It was the band's first to be released on Fat Wreck Chords, and with this release, the band formed a close relationship with the label and its founder Fat Mike, for whom they have released two more albums and continue to record. An independent music video was filmed for the song "Porno and Snuff Films."
